My HIV Doesn’t Define Me
Are you struggling to accept your HIV diagnosis and yourself?
Join peers living with HIV to explore ways to improve your relationships with others and find fulfilment and purpose to accept yourself.
We're offering three online workshops that cover the following areas:
- Improving your relationship with others
- Finding fulfilment and purpose
- Accepting yourself
We also provide videos you can watch now, hearing from people living with HIV about their experiences.
Here in Vitality
Here in Vitality is an intensive, life-affirming course for people who have a long-term diagnosis of HIV (10 years or more).
Over three online sessions, participants will reflect on their experience of being diagnosed, acknowledge their personal journeys amid the changes in wider society and healthcare, and look forward to the future.
To book your place on an upcoming set of workshops, please use the Zoom registration link below.
Please note you must be able to attend all three dates within a set of workshops. If you miss any sessions you will be asked to register for a future workshop series.
What does it involve?
The sessions involve exercises that encourage participants to reflect on the past (session one), present (session two), and future (session three), following their diagnosis with HIV. In the third session, the facilitators share their own experiences with the group. It offers a chance for participants reflect on their individual journeys and emotions and to share with the group if they feel comfortable.
What do I need?
You will need an internet-connected device to join the workshops via Zoom. We can offer data packages for people who are otherwise unable to join – please enquire with [email protected] using the subject line 'Here in Vitality - Data'.
Next course dates
Dates: Monday 23 May, Tuesday 24 May and Wednesday 25 May.
Time: 6.30pm to 8pm.
Common Bond: peer support group for women (including trans women) living with HIV
This group is an inclusive, safe and respectful online space for friendship and fun for people living with HIV who identify as female.
We meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 7pm.
The group offers a space to increase our social connectedness and enable learning from each other, to check in and talk about how we are.
Each month we also have a 10-minute ‘show and tell’ from one of our members to share what supports their wellbeing. The first session in October included a demonstration of tai chi, which got us moving and relaxing, and even creating freestyle dances!
In the final part of the evening, we use breakout rooms to chat in smaller groups.
Our group is full of excitement, building a community for fellowship and also joy from being together in a free and safe space. Please do register and join us whenever you can, and contact [email protected] if you have any questions or need further information.
Living well with HIV: tea and chat drop-in
