Individual and Group Peer Support
Much evidence supports that peer support is a crucial and effective strategy for ongoing health care and sustained behavior change for people with chronic diseases and other conditions.
During Individual Peer Support sessions, our Peer Support staff helps answer questions about medication adherence, addresses skill development around assertiveness and self-advocacy, and connects members to case management, mental health care, substance use disorder treatment, and other supportive services
Peer Support Groups are facilitated discussions in a “safe place” led by Peer Support staff. Included in our array of Peer Support Group opportunities are a long-term survivor support group for women living with HIV/AIDS, a group led in Spanish for our LatinX community, and one for individuals balancing living with HIV with work, work re-entry, and/or higher education.
