Tobacco Cessation and Bias: Tobacco and Mental Wellbeing Masterclass
Original Air Date: Tuesday, June 29, 3–5 p.m. ET
Bias contributes to health disparities among individuals with mental health and substance use challenges. Bias also impacts decision-making when providing care to clients, which can result in lack of engagement and adherence to treatment. For individuals with mental health and substance use challenges who use tobacco, bias can also influence smoking behavior and hinder associated quit attempts and/or cessation.
Join the National Behavioral Health Network for Tobacco and Cancer Control and our co-hosts at the Smoking Cessation Leadership Center, a National Center of Excellence for Tobacco-Free Recovery on Tuesday, June 29 from 3 – 5 p.m. ET for a masterclass workshop designed to build awareness around the impact of bias on clients and staff, as well as the strategies to overcome these barriers in tobacco cessation treatment.
This masterclass workshop will provide real-time discussion and feedback from National Council for Mental Wellbeing experts Tamanna Patel, MPH, director, practice improvement and consulting, who brings expertise from a variety of national health equity initiatives; and Amelia Roeschlein, DSW, MA, LMFT, consultant for trauma-informed services.

- Examine and discuss two biases in health care.

- Analyze the role of bias among individuals with mental health and substance use challenges who use tobacco.
