AbstractThe Clubhouse Model of Psychosocial Rehabilitation offers a variety of supports for members (individuals diagnosed with a Serious Mental Illness [SMI]) to help them recover and lead productive and satisfying lives. Clubhouse services include community-based employment, education, housing, outreach, advocacy, assistance with accessing health care, and social supports. Research shows that people with SMI smoke more than the general population, and are at greater risk of co-morbid health problems and premature death associated with tobacco use, obesity and inadequate health care. The purpose of this tobacco cessation project is to address tobacco use and establish health promotion interventions in clubhouses affiliated with the International Center for Clubhouse Development (ICCD).
