“Among those with a serious mental illness 40.5% smoke.”

Smoke Free Action Coalition Policy February 2018

“Smoking rates have fallen significantly, but smoking still accounts for more years of life lost than any other modifiable risk factor.”

The NHS Long Term Plan January 2019

“Most smokers who have a mental health condition want to quit and it’s vital that the services and support are in place to help them do so. The ambition of The Stolen Years report, and of the Partnership, is to reduce smoking rates among people with a mental health condition: to 5% by 2035, with an interim target of 35% by 2020. It sets out clear recommendations for the actions needed to make this a reality.”

The Mental Health and Smoking Partnership 2018
