Welcome to SMARTS!
The “Supporting Me About Rights To Sexuality” Project!
SMARTS is a European funded project about sexuality & disability
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.
