Doors to Wellbeing Webinar: Peer Support and Smoking Cessation

Tuesday, November 26, 2019, 2 PM
Why talk about smoking cessation and peer support specialists? According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), smoking is the leading cause of preventable death worldwide. "Approximately 25% of adults in the U.S. have some form of mental health or substance use disorder, and these adults consume almost 40% of all cigarettes smoked."
This webinar will highlight the importance of peer support and a plan for individuals taking a journey toward smoking cessation. It will also offer tips for supporters at different stages of a person's journey toward self-liberation from cigarettes.
Learning Objectives
By the end of this webinar you will be able to:
• Describe the practice of curiosity and openness when encountering diverse perspectives about smoking.
• Explore areas of change based on self-direction.
• Examine Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP®) for smoking cessation as a plan and a common language to connect.
