The goal of this study is to adapt, refine, and pilot a provider-delivered HIV-prevention intervention for men and women with SMI in Brazil in order to (1) impart skills to mental-health-care providers (MHCPs) in Brazil to deliver an HIV-prevention intervention for their SMI clients; and (2) help these clients reduce their HIV-risk behaviors. This study will be undertaken collaboratively by a U.S.-Brazil team of experienced investigators.
