Older-Man_Web.jpgThe California Smokers’ Helpline is pleased to host this free webinar, How to Talk with Patients about Smoking Cessation and Depression, on Wednesday, January 27th from noon to 1pm PST.

The relationship between depression and smoking is a significant concern among health professionals.

Smokers often have a cigarette when they feel down. This reliance on cigarettes to manage mood can keep smokers from even trying to quit. And if they do quit, feelings of depression can get them to start smoking again. This webinar will address key strategies to help smokers with depression to quit.

The following continuing education credits are offered for this course: CA BBS, APA, CAADE, and CME.
