Emotional Support

Emotional Support

 

ONE-ON-ONE

Being Alive’s core service is our well-known individualized peer-to-peer support. Whether you are recently diagnosed, or a long term survivor dealing with everyday challenges, we have trained peer support counselors who are living with HIV/AIDS. In addition to emotional support, we offer comprehensive information and referrals to a variety of local services, including primary medical care, housing, substance abuse treatment, mental health and other kinds of referrals. In addition, we offer professional mental health counseling with supervised MFT interns.

 

SUPPORT GROUPS

Being Alive’s support groups are facilitated by trained group leaders who are living with HIV/AIDS. Our goal is to provide a safe and confidential space where individuals can express themselves in a non-judgmental, safe and confidential atmosphere of mutual respect and encouragement. Being Alive hosts many interactive educational groups, so depending on who you are and what you are looking for, there is most likely a group to meet your needs. Check out our Monthly Calendar for weekly group meetings.

Monthly Calendar – Highlights new events, discussion groups and workshop
Medical Updates – offer monthly presentations of cutting edge treatment information from community doctors on a range of HIV-related issues
Outreach Events – Sunset Junction, CSWH Gay Pride, AIDS Walk, and other community events

 

Speaker’s Bureau - group of men and women who relate their personal story to anyone who invites them to do so. Schools, colleges, corporations, institutions.
