Australians with mental illness have higher smoking rates than the general population and they are more likely to die as a consequence of smoking than from their psychiatric condition.

The Chief Psychiatrist invites you to hear Dr Mathew Coleman, Consultant Psychiatrist, present the findings from the specialist smoking cessation clinic recently trialled in the Great Southern Mental Health Service.
