If you have been diagnosed with a severe mental health condition quitting smoking can be tougher to achieve. But with the right support you are 4 times more likely to quit for good! Here at Smokefree Norfolk we have a new service to help.
SmokeFree Norfolk have joined up with ‘Together for Mental Wellbeing’ to launch an exciting new service to support patients with a Severe Mental Illness (SMI) and their carer to quit smoking.
The programme of behavioural support coupled with the use of Nicotine Replacement Therapy (patches etc) or the offer of a FREE vape is tailored to suit you. Offering up to 6 months of support to either decide on a date to quit where you quit all together or a more manageable ‘Cut Down to Stop’.
The team of five Wellbeing Mentors are working across a pilot area in Norwich North and Central, Great Yarmouth and Gorleston. Not only can they coach you to quit they can also help with referrals to other specific support services and organisation to boost your wellbeing and mental health. We can even work with your care team.
Whether you’d prefer support by meeting face-to-face at a local community venue, a home visit or the telephone’s best for you. We’ll help you reach your smokefree goals, one step at a time.
