HealthyWomen has put together support group options to unite those affected by HIV/AIDS. Support groups can vary in format with in-person groups, virtual groups, social media pages, blogs, mobile apps and others. Support groups help connect people who are going through similar experiences and can offer information and advice related to HIV/AIDS.
HealthyWomen offers these resources for information purposes only. We do not endorse or recommend these websites specifically. Always be sure to do your own research and find support that works for you. In addition, be sure to talk with your healthcare provider about HIV/AIDS and your personal treatment plan.
Support groups based on:
The following resources give support group and medical provider options based on ZIP code or state and city. In addition to the groups listed below, you can:
Call your local hospital and ask about its HIV/AIDS support programs
Ask your social worker to suggest support groups
Talk to other patients who have tried support groups and may be able to recommend some that might also work for you
Find your local community center, which usually has information about local resources and other support groups
These support groups offer phone, email, video call and virtual support meeting options. They also provide information for the person with HIV/AIDS, family members or someone concerned about someone else with HIV/AIDS.
These support groups are on social media sites that offer ways to post anonymous questions, share tips or provide advice. Also, some options offer HIV/AIDS blog topics ranging from events to living well to research and news.
These options offer peer navigation programs, webinars, online events, training and other resources.
