This conference features a number of extended interactive sessions will provide a practical guide to smoking cessation in mental health, ensuring your service effectively supports people with mental illness to stop smoking and does so within a smoke free environment. Smoking Cessation in Mental Health, and delivering smoke free environments is key to the government ambition for parity of esteem and to reduce the lower life expectancy of people with mental health disorders: 

“Smoking remains the primary cause of preventable illness and premature death in England, and evidence shows that people living with mental health problems are more likely to smoke. Public Health England believe it is vital to reduce smoking rates among people living with mental health problems” Seamus Watson, national programme manager for wellbeing and mental health at Public Health England, October 2014
