MENTAL HEALTH

Care, uncompromised.

Individual and Group Therapy

It’s never too late to pursue healing.

Choice Health Network offers no-cost individual and group therapy for those who are living with HIV or involved in our prevention program (Project ACT). We strive to create a safe, judgement-free, and respectful environment where you can find support and healing.

Choice Health Network’s Mental Health Program can assist with:

  • Adjusting to living with HIV or other chronic medical condition
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Developing coping and stress management skills
  • Grief and loss
  • Panic attacks and phobias
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Self harm and suicidal thoughts
  • Substance abuse and addiction

Our therapists understand that your history and environment impact your mental health. Our team is sensitive to the specific needs of people living with HIV, those who identify as LGBTQ+, women, and people of color. We use a variety of approaches and techniques in therapy, trying to find what will work best for each client. We emphasize the importance of a strong therapeutic relationship between the client and therapist and believe that this relationship is the foundation for change in therapy.

Mental health services are available by appointment only. To receive a mental health referral, please speak with your provider at Positively Living, Choice Health Network Clinic, or Project ACT.

OUR APPROACH

Your initial appointment is scheduled for two hours and includes a comprehensive assessment to understand your unique needs. You and your therapist will talk about what mental health services you might benefit from and work together to create mental health goals.

There may be circumstances where your needs might be best met by another treatment resource. Your therapist can make referrals and help connect you with other providers and community agencies.
