Webcast: Public Health Roadmap: Promoting Tobacco Use Dependency Treatment in Behavioral Health Settings

Join the American Lung Association for the Public Health Roadmap: Promoting Tobacco Use Dependency Treatment in Behavioral Health Settings webcast on Thursday, June 10, 2021, 1 PM – 2 PM, EST.

Despite the overall declines in tobacco product use, some populations still smoke at higher rates. This includes people with behavioral health issues such as mental illness and substance use disorders. People with behavioral health issues are interested in quitting, can quit, and benefit from quitting. While there is a strong evidence base for safety, efficacy and outcomes, behavioral health settings have been slow to prioritize the implementation of comprehensive tobacco use dependency treatment. This is why it is more important than ever for public health professionals to be equipped tools to address these challenging barriers to making tobacco dependence treatment part of behavioral health treatment.

Join the American Lung Association for an interactive webcast. Attendees can expect to:
  • Increase confidence to engage and partner with systems and care teams in behavioral health settings that are interested in improving how they promote and integrate evidence-based tobacco use dependency treatment services.
  • Learn more about the best practices learned during the 2021 Health Systems Change Cohort group, hosted by the American Lung Association.
  • Learn about new tools for public health professionals, to coach community partners in behavioral health systems change.
