Abstract

It appears that clinics with large numbers of known HIV infected patients have mobilized to deal with the unique needs of these patients by providing specialty services and training staff in HIV service provision. However, the majority of clinics have failed to realize that severe mental illness is associated with behaviors that place individuals at risk of HIV infection or else routine HIV risk assessment would be more common.
