(PDF Download) Enhance Your State’s Tobacco Cessation Efforts Among the Behavioral Health Population: A Behavioral Health Resource


State program planners, behavioral health service providers, insurers, and other stakeholders are becoming increasingly aware of this disparity: compared with the general population, people with mental or substance use disorders (M/SUDs) are more likely to smoke, buy cigarettes, and get sick or die of tobacco-related causes.

Using research findings and data—and with the backing of federal agencies such as the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and partners such as the University of California’s Smoking Cessation Leadership Center (SCLC)—these stakeholders are joining with clinical staff, behavioral health agencies, and associations to increase their state’s tobacco use prevention and cessation efforts for the behavioral health population.
