Local Health Agencies Adopt Tobacco-Free Campus Policy
St. Monica’s, CenterPointe and The Bridge Behavioral Health rehabilitation centers adopted a tobacco-free campus policy and they highlighted their experiences on the video Tobacco-Free Campuses in Behavioral Health Settings.
In April 2015, these three behavioral health agencies received a Community Public Health Award from the Lincoln-Lancaster County Board of Health for adopting a tobacco-free campus policy. View their award ceremony.
TFLC recognizes those businesses that have chosen to make their entire campus smoke/tobacco-free.
