Impact of Tobacco Quitlines on Smoking Cessation in Persons With Mental Illness: A Systematic Review.
J Drug Educ. 2017 Mar-Jun;47(1-2):68-81. doi: 10.1177/0047237918762104. Epub 2018 Mar 13.
 
Persons with mental illness smoke at rates two to four times higher than do persons without mental illness and comprise 30.9% of the U.S. tobacco market. Given the prevalence of mental illness and the known detrimental effects of tobacco, concerted efforts are needed to promote the use of evidence-based treatment options. We conducted a systematic review of studies that examined the impact of tobacco quitline interventions in this population. Results revealed an overall positive impact of cessation services delivered via a tobacco quitline. More research is needed to determine intervention components and patient characteristics that are associated with cessation success.
