“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

Chaired by Dr Jonathan Campion, Director for Public Mental Health, South London & Maudsely NHS Foundation Trust this one day CPD certified conference you will through national updates, case studies and extended interactive sessions provide you with practical information and inspiration to take back to your organisation and utilise in implementing and improving smoking cessation in your organisation, ensuring your service effectively supports people with mental health conditions to stop smoking and does so within a smoke free environment.
