Summary
The Healthy Young Men's Study (HYM) is a five-year longitudinal research project of the Community, Health Outcomes and Intervention Research Program (CHOIR) of The Saban Research Institute of Children's Hospital Los Angeles. Funded in May 2003 by the National Institute of Drug Abuse (RO1 DA015638), the study utilizes longitudinal quantitative and qualitative research methods with a cohort of young men who have sex with men (YMSM), ages 18 to 24 years, to explore the individual, familial, interpersonal, and community factors that may influence drug use, HIV risk, and mental health.The HYM study seeks to contribute to a fuller understanding of the factors that may affect YMSM's use of alcohol and other substances, risk behavior for HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, and mental health, including depression and suicidality.The study focuses on a number of domains that may influence these types of health outcomes among YMSM, including: <list type = "bulleted"><itm>Individual experiences (e.g., sexual identity and "coming out" experiences, racial/ethnic identity, ethnic community ties, and acculturation);</itm><itm>Personality factors (e.g. sensation seeking, proactive coping, and emotion regulation);</itm><itm>The family (e.g., family composition and environment, familial support and/or rejection, and "friends as family");</itm><itm>Social networks and sexual partners (e.g., number and nature of intimate relationships, size and contact frequency of social networks, and norms and support);</itm><itm>Community and social institutions (e.g., engagement with and influence of racial/ethnic community, gay community, religious organizations and leaders, school, workplace, and social service agencies) and;</itm><itm>Stressful life events, including rejection, violence, victimization, and discrimination, particularly as they play a role within the four prior domains (i.e., as an individual experience, within families and sexual partners, and in the community).</itm></list>
