Mental Health Counseling

If you are diagnosed with HIV, your physical health is not the only issue you have to deal with. Associated mental health conditions may come up, such as depression and anxiety. Mental health refers to the overall well-being of a person, including a person’s mood, emotions, and behavior. Many people are stunned when they learn that they have been infected with HIV and may feel overwhelmed by the changes that they will need to make in their lives. It is normal to have strong reactions when you find out you are HIV positive, including feelings such as fear, anger, sadness, and a sense of being overwhelmed. .We offer mental health counseling along with medical care so you should be sure to mention your feelings to our healthcare team. There are many ways to care for your emotional health and treatments will be tailored based on your specific circumstances and needs. The most important thing to remember is that you are not alone and there are support systems in place to help you, including doctors, certified psychologists, family members, friends, support groups, and other services.
