Best Practice Resources​

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.


National Behavioral Health Network

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.
