Rutgers faculty including Dr Peggy Swarbrick, CAS , GSAPP and Ni Gao, RBHS, SHP recently published A pilot study of wellness coaching for smoking cessation among individuals with mental illnesses. The study results show that wellness coaching is feasible as a smoking cessation intervention for this population.

Barriers, challenges, and implications of the pilot study are discussed.
