Details and patient eligibility


According to the World Health Organization (WHO), "Sexual health is a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality, not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or of infirmity. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships \[...\]". The main objective is to show that a training intervention intended for psychiatric care teams and targeted on the question of the impact of psychiatric disorders and psychotropic drugs on the sexuality of young people, increases the proportion of young people with whom the question of sexual health is discussed (in connection with psychiatric disorders and, if applicable, with the taking of psychotropic treatment, while they are hospitalized for a psychiatric disorder in the clinics of the FSEF and receive, or not, psychotropic treatment ).
