End Date: June 23, 2015

National Behavioral Health Network webinar focused on addressing tobacco use and providing cessation supports for people with mental illness and addictions.
While tobacco use rates are nearly double for people with mental illness and addictions, access to evidence-based tobacco cessation treatments and support can greatly improve health outcomes of this population. Long-term benefits of tobacco cessation may include improved self-esteem; and promotion of recovery by increasing the likelihood of long-term drug and alcohol abstinence. Community mental health and addiction treatment providers can directly impact clients’ overall health and wellness by addressing tobacco use and providing cessation supports, including the prescription of FDA-approved cessation medications, and the use of evidence-based counseling techniques, such as the 5 A’s model, ‘Ask, Advise, Refer’, and cessation group therapy.
During this webinar, participants will learn about:
- Making the case for integrating tobacco cessation practices and utilizing tobacco cessation tools within community behavioral health settings
- Tobacco cessation practice guidelines and evidence-based cessation tools
- Successes and lessons learned from community behavioral health provider(s) that have integrated tobacco cessation efforts into practice
