Smoking and mental health

Smoking prevalence is significantly higher in people with mental health problems than among the general population. People with psychotic disorders who live in institutions are particularly vulnerable: over 70% of this group smoke including 52% who are heavy smokers.  

A significant proportion of people with schizophrenia recognises that smoking is a problem, want to quit and will attend smoking cessation therapy. More than half (52%) of schizophrenic smokers living in institutions wanted to give up smoking.
