Abstract

The authors compared the responses of 76 adolescents on an inpatient psychiatric service with those of 802 school-based adolescents in the same city regarding HIV risk behaviors. The psychiatrically hospitalized adolescents reported a significantly higher rate of sexual and drug-related behaviors that involve a risk for contracting sexually transmitted disease, including HIV-related illnesses.
