The mission of TIPS is to improve birth outcomes by decreasing pregnancy smoking and smoke exposure and by improving the overall health of pregnant women in East Tennessee.
We can offer a very large amount of informational material, community resources, and overall support in your effort to quit.
Best of all, we can provide your own smoking cessation coach to guide you through the process!
In addition to helping you quit smoking and be healthier, we can also offer support and an open ear for women in violent home situations or for those going through a difficult period. We will try to help you get the information you need to be safe and healthy. We have contact information for many community resources that may provide financial help, food, shelter, counseling and medical care for you and your children. For this information, see our community resources section by clicking the tab on the left side of the page. You can also talk with your smoking cessation coach about what is going on in your life. Remember, there is always HOPE and our community has many people ready to HELP you!
