State Strategy Sessions

NBHN works to support states in convening stakeholders to discuss and compile evidence-based strategies and recommendations to eliminate tobacco use and cancer-related disparities impacting behavioral health populations.

Communities of Practice

NBHN Communities of Practice support community behavioral health organizations (CBHOs), as well as state and tribal agency teams from across the country, in enhancing tobacco and cancer control efforts for their clients and staff. CBHOs work with the National Council and organizational change experts to develop action plans, engage in ongoing affinity groups, coaching calls, and webinars to support the achievement of these actions plans, ultimately improving the health and wellness of those with behavioral health conditions.
