Individuals with any mental health problem, e.g., depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, are more likely to smoke than those without a mental illness (59.1%) (SAMHSA, 2014). Consequently, they experience more smoking related morbidity and mortality than the general population (Ziedonis & Williams, 2003; Brown, Barraclough, & Inskip, 2000). Their health can be improved if providers actively attend to their tobacco use with appropriate, proven interventions. This webinar will describe reasons tobacco use is not addressed by healthcare providers working with patients with a mental illness, effective smoking cessation practices, and available clinical resources.
- Identify tobacco related health problems in individuals with a mental health condition;
- Describe barriers experienced by healthcare professionals that affect their treatment of smoking and tobacco use in individuals with a mental health condition; and
- Identify smoking cessation best practices effective for individuals with a mental health condition.
