Doherty, Kathleen (2006) Giving up the habit. Mental Health Today , May , pp. 27-29.

This article reports on a smoking cessation programme across two local health and social care groups in Northern Ireland: two community projects, and two hospitals. The overall aim of the project was to reduce the prevalence and incidence of smoking among clients, carers and staff within mental health settings.

Smoking cessation advice and support was offered weekly over a ten-week programme, either on a one-to-one basis or in a group. The results found that the project not only achieved a reduction in the incidence and prevalence of smoking among clients with mental health problems, it also found that people with mental health problems do want, and can stop smoking.
