Help Your Patients
If your patients are ready to take the next step in quitting, refer them to Florida’s free and evidence-based resources.
Tobacco Free Florida and the FSU College of Medicine are working to expand access to treatment for tobacco dependency to people with mental health and substance abuse disorders. These individuals have significantly higher tobacco use prevalence rates compared to the general population, experience stronger withdrawal symptoms, and are less likely to have stopped smoking over their lifetime. Like other smokers, smokers with mental illness ARE interested in quitting and are able to quit when supported with evidence-based treatments. If you would like information about helping your clientele quit tobacco, please contact Andrée Aubrey at FSU College of Medicine at 850-645-6439 or firstname.lastname@example.org. There are many resources available to you including scholarships for staff training, technical assistance with incorporating services at your site and other resources to support a tobacco project.
