October 15 General Meeting - Tobacco and mental health: treatment challenges

Tobacco use is estimated to account for an average of 25 years of life lost for individuals with chronic mental illness. Within this context, tobacco exposure, use, and pathways to quitting become a matter of life and death. In this presentation, two tobacco use and mental health experts, Cati Brown-Johnson, PhD (Stanford Prevention Research Center) and Dr. Sebastian Fromont (formerly an emergency psychiatrist at San Francisco General Hospital), will discuss research and treatment of tobacco use as it pertains to individuals with mental health diagnoses. Topics covered will include the history of tobacco and mental health, current research pertaining to tobacco, and patient struggles with addiction and readiness to quit. Also, treatment options and pharmacology concerns for patients will be presented from a psychiatry perspective.
