A Peer Facilitator’s Guide
MANTRA has developed this easy to understand resource for anyone
who is interested in facilitating a smoking cessation/reduction group.
This resource is a self‐guiding, four session group facilitation manual
that is easy to read with straight forward directions and simple to
understand information about cessation/reduction. This can be used by anyone who is interested in running a four session smoking cessation/
reduction group. The facilitator can be an ex‐smoker but this manual
can also be used by helpers such as volunteers, support staff, health
providers working in community service or health agencies.
MANTRA Awareness & Cessation Tobacco Basics CD
The Tobacco Basics CD is a crash course PowerPoint presentation
on a number of topics related to tobacco. The presentation is highly
customizable including 12 topics that range from the influence of the
tobacco industry to the health and economic impacts of smoking,
to helping people to quit. This resource is perfect for people who want
to expand their knowledge of tobacco issues or want to present these
issues to others. Revised 2012.
MANTRA Motivator Meter
The motivation meter is a fun and effective tool provided to smokers
as an aid in promoting smoking reduction and/or cessation. This
popular tool measures the potential health benefits and amounts
of money that can be saved over selected periods of time, when
a smoker quits. On the reverse side is a list of smoking triggers
and ways to avoid the temptation.
