Tobacco use is common among people with mental health disorders and most are not motivated to quit in the near future. Quitting smoking is often the single best thing a patient can do for their health but tobacco treatment is often a low priority for patients with co-occurring mental health disorders. In this presentation we will review the research on tobacco treatment and harm reduction for people with co-occurring mental health disorders who are unmotivated or feel unable to quit.
This workshop is designed to help clinicians:
1. Describe the impact that tobacco treatment can have for people who smoke and have a co-occurring mental health disorder.
2. Utilize an empirically supported brief motivational intervention to promote quitting among patients who are unmotivated or feel unable to quit tobacco.
3. Utilize an empirically supported brief reduction-based intervention to reduce harm and promote quitting among patients who are unmotivated or feel unable to quit tobacco.
Online check-in begins at 11:30 a.m., program begins at noon.
