Teen Tobacco Cessation Project
To expand the CRPN’s commitment to child and adolescent mental health, grant funding has been received to provide tobacco cessation programs in schools and community agencies. The Not on Tobacco Program developed by the American Lung Association will be utilized by the CRPN to address tobacco use in adolescents between the ages of 13 and 19.
The NOT program is flexible, covers a wide range of topics like stress management and coping mechanisms and can be completed over a five or ten week period. Teens have a hands-on learning experience, and receive incentives for active participation.
In addition, we have developed an interactive tobacco awareness presentation for large groups of teens and adults. This is a great option for health classes, community meetings, and health fairs.
