For more than 13 years, PEERS has been making a difference in the lives of people with mental health and substance abuse challenges. To date, we have served thousands of individuals in helping reduce or end tobacco use through educational presentations or through our Tobacco Freedom support groups.

Our Tobacco Harm Reduction presentations give participants an understanding of the health risks associated with tobacco use. In our presentations, we cover:

  • Who uses tobacco
  • Health effects of tobacco use
  • How smoking affects your body
  • Nature of tobacco addiction
  • Complexity of quitting
  • Effective support tools
