Did you know? More behavioral health patients will die from tobacco use than from their behavioral health issues—and they’ll die from tobacco sooner.
Attendees will learn:
-The rational for integrating tobacco treatment into behavioral health services
-The barriers, challenges, and rewards of helping people who smoke and are affected by mental illness/substance use disorders to quit smoking.
-Training, technical assistance, and resources available to assist behavioral health providers with integrating tobacco treatment
