The Heart Network is pleased to announce that in the past month, two mental health systems have joined the North Country’s Health Systems for a Tobacco Free NY initiative. Clinton County Mental Health and Essex County Mental Health have signed participation agreements, joining Adirondack Health, Citizen Advocates and Northern Adirondack Medical Home. Each partnership agreement provides a pathway for the organization to institutionalize the identification and treatment of tobacco dependence.
“I’m looking forward to working with each of these groups on this project. The energy and support for making tobacco dependence treatment a priority is exciting,” said Ann Morgan, Project Coordinator.
