Embedding treatment in addiction/mental healthcare units in Brazil with João Mauricio Castaldelli-Maia, MD

Brazil’s mental health and addiction (MHA) patients have received little help to combat smoking, according to Global Bridges grantee João Mauricio Castaldelli-Maia, MD. His project focused on the implementation of evidence-based tobacco dependence treatment within MHA units that did not run specialized treatment for smoking.

186 health professionals have since been trained with customized and adaptive content in MHA units. Learn more about this project from Dr. Castaldelli-Maia’s poster from the 2016 Summit: Joao Mauricio Castaldelli-Maia Global Bridges Poster
