Psychosocial Needs of YMSM
Psychosocial Needs of HIV+ Young Men Who Have Sex With Men (YMSM)

The proposed study will use both qualitative and quantitative research methods (mixed methods) to gather data that will support the eventual development of interventions for young men who have sex with men (YMSM) living with behaviorally acquired HIV infection. The overall goal of the study is to gain an understanding of the psychosocial/developmental needs of YMSM by focusing on two critical developmental issues—identity development and future life goals.
