Support groups help our members improve their mental and physical health as they receive counseling, support, information and guidance. In the safe and secure environment of our support groups, they can freely talk through their thoughts, fears, worries, frustrations and other issues associated with their illness. The group dynamic helps our members constructively deal with issues related to living with HIV/AIDS. Input from other group participants gives perspective and insight.
Shepherd Wellness Community offers a support group for people living with HIV/AIDS at our 1st & 3rd Friday Dinners. Weeknight groups focusing on specific needs or topics are offered throughout the year at our Center. Recent groups included a Healthy Relationships Group (dealing with relationships in the context of living with HIV) and an HIV and Aging Group (dealing with how to live long-term with HIV).
Please check our calendar for scheduled support groups.
