The first Monday of every month NAMI Pasco collaborates with community partners as part of our education and advocacy efforts. These professionals and volunteers work in and around the field of mental health awareness and behavioral health. We design presentations in order to bring useful topics and key resources to people in our immediate communities who need them most. All education meetings are free to the public. Refreshments are served.
Tobacco and Mental Health
Join NAMI Pasco and Sabel Taylor, BA, who will lead an important and evocative discussion on how tobacco companies continue to target the mental health population with their products. According to The Journal of the American Medical Association, 44.3 percent of all cigarettes in America are consumed by individuals who live with mental illness and/or substance abuse disorders. According to NAMI National, “There is no one single, certain reason why so many people who live with mental illness smoke. It may be a combination of brain effects, psychological
effects and the social world in which we live.” Be our guest for an important conversation about nicotine and people with brain disorders.
RSVPs are not required but much appreciated. Find everything you need to know below. Hope to see you on Monday, February 2, 2015 at Rasmussen College’s Lutz Campus.
