Smoking disproportionately affects the health and wellbeing of people with mental health conditions. People who use mental health services, who smoke, often want to quit but historically have not been offered a way out of tobacco dependence that is genuinely helpful to them.

The aim of this briefing is to guide staff working with mental health service users to:
• Minimise discomfort and anxiety to service users who are admitted to smokefree premises and maximise the likelihood of long-term cessation
• Support service users to temporarily abstain from smoking and/or to stop smoking during an admission to smokefree premises
• Support people in the community and help to prepare service users for admission to a smokefree setting
• Support people to co-operate with smokefree policies
