SMARTS: Supporting Me About Rights to Sexuality
What is SMARTS?
"Supporting Me About Rights To Sexuality"!
The SMARTS project aims to better identify the support needs of persons with intellectual disabilities and persons with mental health conditions in the field of sexuality, as well as develop their skills and those of the care providers, to make supported decisions in the field of sexuality.
The expected result will be, on the one hand, for persons with intellectual disabilities and persons with mental health conditions to feel more empowered to make decisions with regards to their sexuality and, on the other hand, for supporters to feel better equipped and skilled to support decision making.
All the activities at a glance:
- Guidelines on supported decision making and practices in the field of sexuality for persons with intellectual disabilities and persons with mental health conditions. These guidelines will be separately addressed to family carers and professionals.
- Awareness toolkit for persons with intellectual disabilities and persons with mental health conditions.
- Training course for caregivers.
