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.  Free technical assistance is available from the Mecklenburg County Public Health tobacco control team. Customized trainings (in person or virtual) can be provided to your agency staff. Clinical staff trainings are approximately 3 hours in length and can be delivered on one day or split between two days. To request a training, contact Kim Bayha


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 Mental WellBeing
