Get Involved in the Lung Mind Alliance

Minnesota Leadership Academy Collaborative grows into the Lung Mind Alliance

Join us

There are many ways to support this work as a partner organization or as an individual. Organizations do not need to have tobacco-free grounds policies to join, but all members share a commitment to integrating tobacco treatment and creating tobacco-free environments in all Minnesota mental health and substance use treatment settings

Sign the Collaborative Statement

The Lung Mind Alliance Statement demonstrates our members' commitment to advancing statewide tobacco-free treatment environments. Signing on to the letter is a powerful way to show your organization's support for this work.

Join an Action Team

Three action teams—the Professional Education Team, Reimbursement Team, and Statewide Policy Partners Team ─ carry out the work of the Lung Mind Alliance. By joining a team, you can be a part of creating a healthier Minnesota for people with mental illness and substance use disorders.

Be an Ambassador

You can help us grow this movement by sharing information about the Lung Mind Alliance and tobacco-free treatment environments with other organizations. We have tools to help you get started, and are here to support you in these important conversations.

Educate Your Organization

We have a number of resources available to help educate your organization's staff about the importance of tobacco treatment and tobacco-free mental health and substance use treatment settings. If your organization isn't ready to become a member yet, this is a great way you can support this work as an individual.

Integrate Tobacco Treatment & Go Tobacco-Free

If your organization would like to integrate tobacco treatment into your services or consider adopting a tobacco-free grounds policy, we can support you in that process. Staff from partner organizations that have gone tobacco-free have created a comprehensive Tips from the Field implementation guide, and are happy to talk with you about how their organizations successfully integrated tobacco treatment services and adopted tobacco-free grounds policies.

Stay Connected

Through our bimonthly newsletter, you'll get updates on the work of our 3 Action Teams, read stories about organizations that have implemented tobacco-free grounds policies or have integrated tobacco treatment as one of their services, and learn about upcoming training opportunities.
