DPHHS Sponsors Workshop to Shine a Light on

Mental Health and Tobacco Dependence

The Montana Tobacco Use Prevention Program (MTUPP) is sponsoring a workshop entitled Mental Health and Tobacco Dependence: Road Map for Wellness and Recovery in Helena on Thursday, June 16 and repeating in Livingston on Friday, June 17.

Nationally-renowned addiction psychiatrist Jill M. Williams, MD, will host the full-day workshops focusing on the impact of tobacco use on individuals with behavioral health disorders and effective strategies to treat tobacco dependency.

Dr. Williams is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the Division of Addiction Psychiatry at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ)-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick.

As a result of current research by Dr. Williams and others, this public health topic has garnered recent national attention. Montana joins several other states focusing specifically on the distinct issues surrounding mental health and tobacco addiction. 

Workshops will be held in:

  • Helena, Red Lion Colonial Inn, June 16, 2011, 9:20 a.m – 4:15 p.m.
