Mental Illness | Quit Tasmania

Mental Illness

The Australian Government’s National Tobacco Campaign (NTC) is encouraging people with a mental illness to quit smoking.  Raising awareness of the issue of smoking and mental illness amongst health professionals and other professionals working with this group of people is also a priority.

The NTC, in partnership with the national mental health charity SANE Australia, has developed a number of smoking cessation resources for people experiencing mental ill health and for people and professionals who are supporting them.
