SPECIALIST SMOKING CESSATION SERVICE (MENTAL HEALTH) 

Some people with mental health problems find it difficult to access and engage in mainstream Smoking Cessation support groups and are less likely to request one-to-one support, being unaware that it is available via mainstream services. For people with severe and/or enduring mental health problems it is possible to access Specialist Smoking Cessation support provided by a mental health practitioner by using the referral form , or making a telephone or email referral.  One-to-one and group support is available within this specialist service.  More information....
