In this training, health service providers expand on the intersecting issues that impact the overall physical, emotional and mental well-being of young Black men who have sex with men (MSM). In order to facilitate our understanding of this topic, the trainers present a case study, Shawn, who is an 18-year-old young Black MSM from Jackson, Mississippi. Shawn comes from a religious household and reports symptoms of insomnia and anal itching to his health care provider. The trainers discuss behavioral and mental health disparities among this patient population, the importance of integrating discussions of sexual pleasure into provider-patient conversations and the myriad factors that affect engagement, linkage and retention to care among YBMSM. They conclude the course by offering a wide-range of clinical practice strategies to engage this population in care and to prevent the perpetuation of implicit bias, medical mistrust and stigma in the clinical setting.
