Increasing Access to Drinking Water

 

What we drink can affect our health, and calories from drinks can add up quickly. Sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) such as regular sodas, fruit-flavored drinks, coffees and teas, and sports and energy drinks, are the largest source of added sugars and are major contributors of calories to Americans’ diets.

Successful Strategies for Tobacco Control for Mental Health and Substance Abuse Populations

 

Americans with mental illness smoke at higher rates and die on average 25 years earlier than the rest of the US population. They also often have substance abuse problems. People with mental illness often lack access to treatment, and those who do gain access often find themselves in programs that mistakenly believe using tobacco is an appropriate way to cope with and manage mental illness. While national recommendations for smoking cessation treatment for this population exist (e.g. those of the American Psychiatric Association), these recommendations are not routinely implemented. Moreover, little is known about the progress of state tobacco control programs (TCPs) toward addressing this population.
