A recent study is suggesting that secondhand smoke could play a role in a child's mental health, although they aren't sure how it plays a role: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/40574332/ns/health-mental_health/.

I once read some research about the addiction in teens to cigarettes actually triggering depression and the very thing some teens start smoking to soothe -
