Adults with behavioral health conditions smoke nearly 40% of all cigarettes, and research indicates that abstinence-based cessation programming is not effective for everyone, every time. Focusing on harm reduction has proven to be an effective pathway to cessation and reducing the negative health effects of tobacco use.

Presented by Henry Chung, M.D., senior medical director of behavioral integration strategy at Montefiore Care Management Organization and professor of psychiatry at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Michelle Blackmore, Ph.D., project director of care management organization at, Montefiore Medical Center.
