Our Ryan White Wellness Program provides integrated, HIV focused mental health treatment along with preventive and supportive services for clients living with HIV/AIDS and mental illness. This program aims to improve client’s adherence to treatment for physical, mental, and behavioral health problems. A unique feature of the program is that all services can be provided off-site and in the client’s home.
We accept referrals from all VIP programs, community partners, hospitals, schools, and individuals who seek care. We assist clients in goal setting and help them decide on their course of treatments. When appropriate and with client consent, our staff works cooperatively with other service providers to coordinate care.
