Statewide Integrated Health Promotion to Decrease Obesity and Smoking in Community Mental Health Settings
Aim 1: To identify clinical, psychological, and program predictors of long-term health outcomes for 800 people with obesity and mental illness and 400 smokers with mental illness in a statewide, incentive-based health promotion program.
Aim 2: To explore individual, social, and environmental factors associated with long-term health outcomes in a statewide health promotion program comparing high (n=30) vs. low (n=30) improved health outcomes.
Aim 3: To evaluate long-term sustainability and costs of integrated health promotion programs for the vulnerable health disparity population of adults with mental illness.
