Coronavirus Update:What patients and families need to know

HIV Services Mental Health Program

The HIV Services Mental Health Program provides psychological services to children, adolescents, young adults and families living with HIV/AIDS. The program is currently open to patients between ages 4 and 24 and their families. Our services are integrated with other medical care provided for patients and families to ensure that they receive comprehensive care in our outpatient clinic, Special Immunology Service.

Patients living with HIV/AIDS often experience a variety of mental health issues including: anxiety, depression, bereavement, post-traumatic stress symptoms, substance abuse, relationship problems, difficulties with adjustment and behavioral problems. Patients are routinely screened for areas of concern and possible recommendations are discussed with families.
