Abstract

HIV/AIDS among the severely mentally ill (SMI) population exceeds the held belief that man to man contact is the leading type of, rate of transmission and infection placing an emphasis on high risk behavior management, education and testing as key in reducing the epidemic in psychiatric facility inpatient/outpatient populations (Rothbard, Psychiatric Services 54(9):1240–1246, 2003). The Information-Motivation-Behavioral Skills Model (IMB) is an integrative framework to explain HIV risk reduction most often used and tested with the SMI population (Carey et al. Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology 72(2), 2004; Donenberg AIDS Education and Prevention 17(3):200–216, 2005; Meade and Sikkema Clinical Psychology Review 25(4):433–457, 2005; Rosenberg et al. Comprehensive Psychiatry 42(4):263–271, 2001). This education pilot program was developed for the Department of Texas State Health Services (DSHS) Austin State Hospital (ASH) Education and Rehabilitation Adult Psychiatric Services (APS) acute and forensic inpatient units.
