Concern with vs concern about

Hello everybody,

Can you tell me the differences between “concern with” and “concern about”.

Thank you in advance,

Usually, ‘concerned with’ = ‘involved with; on the topic of’ and ‘concerned about’ = ‘worried about’.

Hi Ann,

Let’s put both into a sentence:

The Department of Health is concerned with the welfare of the population and is concerned about the increase in the number of people smoking.
