People who have experienced serious mental health issues are three times more likely to smoke than the wider population.

This summary, plus infographic, describes the Smoking Cessation Intervention for People with Severe Mental Ill Health trial.

The study, led by the University of York, demonstrated that when people with severe mental ill health issues are provided with a bespoke smoking cessation intervention, smoking quit rates were doubled compared to those who received usual care.

This research highlights the importance of tailored and responsive interventions for people who use mental health services.
