DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK: Mental health consumers want to lead full and satisfying lives in the relationships and communities of their choice. Being respected as people making decisions about sex and expressing sexual identity is an important aspect of building a dignified relationship with a mental health consumer. In addition to sexual health disparities, mental health consumers frequently underreport sexual difficulties and mental health nurses can find themselves also avoiding topics related to sexuality. This will be a free-ranging dialogue between a mental health consumer and a mental health nurse about the pleasures, perils and possibilities for talking more openly about sex in mental health settings.
