Health SA’s Tobacco and Mental Illness Project has produced many resources for people with a mental illness – who are more likely to smoke, and smoke more heavily than the general population. For example a study has reported that 60% of people with schizophrenia smoke.

The resources have used cartoons and graphics to help explain the project’s aims of awareness, practice change and reduction. Cartoons can (I hope!) connect with a reader, empathise, and help them through the text.
Here are some examples.
