Tobacco Prevention and Cessation

  /  Tobacco Prevention and Cessation

Promoting a tobacco-free generation through community prevention and cessation resources

CASY’s Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Program seeks to promote a tobacco-free generation through prevention education, supporting tobacco-free environments, and assisting tobacco users who want to quit. A diverse coalition representing health care, education, business, housing, and other sectors in the community assists in these efforts. Through direct programming and public awareness campaigns, CASY works with its many community partners to foster safer, healthier environments for youth in the Wabash Valley.

What We Do

Prevention Education – CASY TPC partners with local K-12 and post-secondary educators to empower youth and young adults to live tobacco-tree lives.

Tobacco Quitline Promotion – CASY TPC helps health care providers, businesses, and organizations in the community make the best use of this free, evidence-based resource for helping people transition to tobacco-free living.

Outreach – CASY TPC works to include disparately affected populations such as veterans, minorities, those with disabilities, and the LGBTQ community.

Environmental Change – CASY TPC promotes the universal benefits of tobacco-free environments in many arenas including the workplace, public spaces, and multi-unit housing.

CELEBRATING SEVEN YEARS SMOKE-FREE

Vigo County residents and visitors have been able to breathe easier for the past seven years. Thanks to city and county ordinances  that went into effect on July 1, 2012, people in Terre Haute and surrounding communities can enjoy smoke-free indoor air in all public spaces. These comprehensive ordinances also protect all workers, including those in hospitality venues.

In recognition of this anniversary, CASY and the Vigo County Tobacco Prevention & Cessation Coalition are celebrating #SevenYearsAndCounting. You can join us by following us on Facebook and Twitter @VigoTPC, signing up to receive our newsletter, or even becoming a TPC volunteer.
