Breathe Easy NC: Becoming Tobacco Free in Behavioral Health Settings
This training will assist behavioral health leaders and practitioners to make behavioral health facilities 100% tobacco free and with improving their skills to provide evidence-based tobacco use treatment concurrently with mental health and substance use disorder treatment. Providers will receive the information and skills they need to prepare for the NC Medicaid Tobacco-free policy requirement that goes into effect July 1, 2022. Participants will learn about FDA approved tobacco treatment medication with behavioral interventions and how to deploy them in behavioral health settings. Participants will engage with professional ethics and how they fit with tobacco use treatment, as well as trauma-informed tobacco use treatment and policies. Then, through experiential training methods, participants will develop policy planning and implementation skills as well as quality improvement skills to integrate tobacco treatment into the behavioral health system.
