Take a Breath, See life without tobacco
The program aims to achieve smoking cessation, to strengthen skills and to promote a quality and value-driven life among adolescents and young adults. To achieve this goal, an innovative online program has been created, maintaining the interactive nature of traditional intervention programs (e.g. face-to-face approach). The program is custom-made for the Cypriot society, and is based on the principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. It provides content that is specific to the needs and reasons of why adolescents and young adult smokers have taken up or continue smoking.
The program touches on two aspects: first, raising awareness and informing school-age children about smoking and second, applying the online program to secondary schools for smoking cessation.
The program takes places in collaboration with the University of Cyprus, the Ministry of Education and Culture and the Cyprus Respiratory Society.
