KANTORSKI, Luciane Prado et al. Tobacco use among users of psychosocial care centers and residential therapeutic services. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2014, vol.10, n.1, pp. 17-22. ISSN 1806-6976.

People with psychic disorders tend to be most vulnerable to smoking. Because of the relation between smoking and the occurrence of mental illness, came to light the interest to check the consumption of tobacco among users of Psychosocial Care Centers and Residential Therapeutic Services. This is a descriptive and quantitative study conducted with 392 users of mental health services through questionnaires. The main data showed the influence of smoking with the person with psychic disorder and the diagnosis, since these people show behavioral patterns which justify smoking. Therefore, we should think on harm reduction and prevention as care strategies for these people.
