The Mental Health and Smoking Partnership pledge to Equally Well UK
People with mental health conditions die on average 10-20 years earlier than those without, with smoking the single largest contributor to this reduced life expectancy. The Mental Health and Smoking Partnership is working towards the long-term goal of ending this inequality. There is no single measure that will transform outcomes but a whole systems approach is needed that involves staff across mental health, physical health and social care, and empowers individuals to realise their goals of being smokefree. The Partnership is proud to bring its network and expertise to support Equally Well.
