Dear Colleagues,

The Smoking Cessation Leadership Center (SCLC) is pleased to invite you to a free webinar, "Tobacco-Free State Psychiatric Hospitals: From Policy to Practice,” on October 23, 2012 at 1pm Eastern Time (90 minutes).

We are honored to have experts from the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors (NASMHPD) and the NASMHPD Research Institute (NRI) on the webinar panel:

Robert Glover, PhD, Executive Director, National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors
Lucille Schacht, PhD, Director of Statistical Analysis, NRI, Inc.
Joseph Parks, MD, Chief Clinical Officer, Missouri Department of Mental Health, Distinguished Professor of Science, University of Missouri

Webinar objectives:

• Learn the methods and results of a survey on smoking policies and practices in state psychiatric hospitals
• Understand key findings and their applications to tobacco dependence interventions in psychiatric settings
• Learn how the study may inform development of more effective smoking cessation policies and practices for people living with mental illnesses

Beginning in 2006, NRI has been surveying state psychiatric facilities on their smoking policies and practices. The main goal of the 2011 survey was to identify progress by state psychiatric facilities toward providing smoke-free environments. Since 2007 the NRI survey has been supported by the Smoking Cessation Leadership Center.
