3-Part Series: An Update on Adolescent Vaping Prevention: Prevalence, Adverse Behavioral Health Effects, and Prevention Practices Part 2: Links Between Vaping and Adolescent Behavioral Health


Tuesday, February 27, 2024 @ 10:30 - 11:45 a.m. MST (11:30 - 11:45 a.m. CST)


Presented by: Dr. Michael Chaiton, Senior Scientist, Center for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) Institute for Mental Health Policy Research; Director of Research, Ontario Tobacco Research Unit; Associate Professor affiliated with the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, Institute for Medical Sciences, University of Toronto.

The presenter will explore the evidence behind the relationship between nicotine and behavioral health. Nicotine use is strongly correlated with behavioral health conditions such as depression, among both adults and adolescents. Participants will gain an understanding of the link between vaping and adolescent behavioral health.

After this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the relationship between nicotine (including vaping) and adolescent behavioral health
  • Identify the reasons why individuals with mental health conditions have higher rates of nicotine smoking (nicotine as self-medication, nicotine as cause of mental health issues, or whether there is a social common cause)
  • Understand that quitting nicotine or preventing its initiation can improve mental health in adolescents
