Implementing Tobacco Cessation Treatment for Individuals with Serious Mental Illness

A Quick Guide for Program Directors and Clinicians

Tobacco use is widespread among individuals with serious mental illness (SMI), and the high prevalence of tobacco-related mortality among them is well-documented. Research shows that individuals with SMI who smoke are as interested in quitting as those without SMI, and can do so without jeopardizing their mental health recovery. There is a critical need to engage mental health program directors and clinicians in efforts to increase access to evidence-based tobacco treatment for these individuals.

SAMHSA’s recently released Implementing Tobacco Cessation Treatment for Individuals with Serious Mental Illness: A Quick Guide for Program Directors and Clinicians guide can help clinicians implement a tobacco cessation program for individuals with SMI.
