Smoking and mental health
Often, people who smoke do so in attempt to relieve feelings of stress, anxiety, and ill mental health.

If you are suffering with ill mental health, a QuitReady Advisor can provide specialist support and options to help you on your quit journey. For further support, get support from Leicestershire County Council.
