Abstract Tobacco use continues to be the leading cause of preventable death in the United States. Despite increased evidence provided in the 2010 Surgeon Generals report that cigarette smoking causes disease and that no level of cigarette use is safe, rates of cigarette use among certain groups of Americans remain high. One group with cigarette use that has garnered both increased attention and concern over the past decade is persons with mental illness. Previous research has shown that rates of cigarette use among persons with mental illness have been significantly higher than rates among persons who do not have mental illness. This report uses data from the 2009 to 2011 National Surveys on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) to provide up-to-date information on the relationship between smoking and mental illness.
