Living Well Workshops

Living Well classes are similar to PSMP program, but are not specific to HIV.  Living Well with Chronic Conditions (the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program, or CDSMP) is a six-week workshop that provides tools for living healthy with chronic health conditions, including diabetes, arthritis, asthma and heart disease.  Through weekly sessions, the workshop provides support for continuing normal daily activities and dealing with the emotions that chronic conditions may bring about.  Living Well classes are held in either English or Spanish.

Social Networks for People Living with HIV

Many people who are living with HIV have trouble connecting with other people who have HIV. This is especially common for people who live in more rural areas of the state. Online networks are a great place to meet and connect with other people who have HIV. This document provides information on several online communities that are specific to people who have HIV and/or other chronic illness.
