Psychosocial Support Services

Hands claspedAre you HIV-positive and need some emotional support in coping with your diagnosis or status? HVCS’ new Psychosocial Support Services program offers a range of  supports for people coping with the stress of an HIV diagnosis or living with HIV. These issues may include feeling isolated, stigmatized, depressed, and physical challenges that impact your emotional health.

We offer support groups to help you find support and develop a sense of community:

  • Women Empowered Groups* – a closed trauma-informed group for women, lasting six sessions over the course of three months
  • Women Empowered Art Therapy* – a closed trauma-informed art therapy and journaling group for women, lasting six sessions over the course of three months
  • Men’s Group
  • Co-Ed Group

Qualifications: You must be HIV-positive and reside in the Lower Hudson area (Putnam, Rockland, Westchester counties).

*The Women Empowered groups are made possible by a grant from the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.
