Co-Exist - for gay & bisexual men living with HIV & Hepatitis C
Posted on: August 13 2015, 02:24 pm

London Friend would like to invite gay and bisexual men living with both HIV and Hepatitis C to a discussion around the future provision of a Peer Support Group. This initial session will help assess need and inform the content and design of this new group.

http://londonfriend.org.uk/2015/08/12/co-exist-a-new-group-for-men-living-with-hiv-hepatitis-c

This session will be held on Tuesday 8th September 6.30 – 8.00pm at London Friend, 86 Caledonian Road, N1 9DN.

The group aims to:
•Provide support and understanding.
•Offer a safe place and a comfortable environment.
•Create support systems and perhaps create new friendships.
•Share experiences and learn how to live well with co-infection.
•Build coping mechanisms to deal with difficult feelings.
•Breakdown the sense of isolation felt from living with co-infection.

The group will be facilitated by Joel, who for the last 16 years has worked in health and social care. Joel is also a qualified counsellor & writer for Baseline Magazine. Recently, Joel has successfully completed Hep C treatment, he has lived with HIV for 11 years, and so has a personal and professional understanding of what it means to live with co-infection.

This is open on a first come first serve basis to the first 15 people that book their place. For more information and to book your place please contact me.

I attach leaflets & posters if you could kindly display or forward to contacts that may be interested.

Regards
