Summarizes the results of a study on the feasibility of integrating tobacco treatment and support within mental health, addictions and sexual violence services, in a gender informed way. The study included focus groups with service providers and with smokers, and a review of the literature on tobacco cessation in the mental health, substance use, and trauma treatment fields. Found that smokers who use mental health, substance use, and sexual violence services are generally knowledgeable about the harms of smoking, and the majority are interested in quitting.
