In 2015 approximately 264 billion cigarettes were sold in the U.S. and adults with mental illnesses smoked almost a third of them. This staggering trend represented a missed opportunity for Texas’ behavioral health centers to proactively address tobacco use with their clients. Taking Texas Tobacco Free (TTTF) was the perfect way to move the needle forward, providing assistance to local behavioral health centers across Texas looking to reverse this trend in one of our most vulnerable populations. Attend our upcoming webinar, Change is in the Air: Taking Initiative Towards a Tobacco-Free Texas on Tuesday, February 7 from 2-3:30pm ET to learn how your mental health facility can go tobacco-free.
During this webinar, participants will hear from TTTF Project Leads on how to:
- Make the case for integrating tobacco cessation practices and utilizing tobacco cessation tools within their community behavioral health setting
- Develop and implement tobacco-free workplace policies
- Offer tobacco treatment training and integrating tobacco use assessment into clinical practice
- Build and sustain capacity around maintaining tobacco-free initiatives
