Mental Health Consideration in Secondary HIV Prevention

Meeting Summary
Bethesda, Maryland

In July 2007, the Secondary Prevention and Translation Branch of NIMH’s Center for Mental Health Research on AIDS (CMHRA) hosted a meeting that focused on identifying target areas for new research on the intersection of secondary HIV prevention and mental health, specifically related to HIV-infected individuals with psychiatric disorders living in the United States. The workshop assembled researchers and staff from CMHRA and the Divisions of Services and Intervention Research (DSIR), Adult Translational Research and Treatment Development (DATR), and AIDS and Health and Behavior Research (DAHBR). Participants discussed promising research directions to spur scientific advances in understanding how best to intervene to address risk behaviors and the psychological well-being for people living with HIV/AIDS.
