CHOICES Program 

CHOICES is a grant funded program founded by Jill M. Williams, MD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry. This program employs mental health peer counselors to deliver the message to smokers with mental illnesses that addressing tobacco is important and that they should seek treatment. The CHOICES goal is to eliminate disparities in access to tobacco cessation services by targeting the mentality ill, a group with heavy smoking and low socioeconomic status. For more information, please contact Trish Dooley 732-235-3361, or visit the CHOICES web site.
