Addressing tobacco use in behavioral health settings is possible and can be successful when organizations
take a comprehensive approach. It is essential to build the foundational skills, support and
communication necessary to change the culture, motivate new behavior, and provide hope. It involves the combination of integrating evidence-based
tobacco treatment services with tobacco-free campus policies.
Many best practice resources are
available to assist your organization in this journey.
An excellent place to begin is with the National Behavioral Health Network for Tobacco
& Cancer Control (NBHN), operated by the
National Council for Behavioral Health. It is one of eight CDC National Networks
that ignite action to eliminate tobacco- and cancer-related
disparities. NBHN serves as a resource hub for health care professionals
seeking to combat disparities specifically impacting people with mental health conditions and/or substance use disorders.
