Did you know...
People with mental illness smoke almost half of all cigarettes sold in the US?
As you can imagine, this seriously affects their ability to live long and healthy lives. In our lab we are working hard to try to understand why people with mental illness are especially prone to cigarette smoking and to try to find new ways of helping them quit.
Dr. Jennifer Tidey is the Director of this lab. Her research is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and her lab is located at Brown University’s Center for Alcohol & Addiction Studies, 121 South Main Street in Providence, RI.
