The stigma and discrimination facing men living with HIV can be damaging to their mental, emotional and physical wellbeing.
We want to ensure gay men get the best possible support and have made tools for both gay men and healthcare professionals to use.
Healthcare professional slide kit
Healthcare professionals should be aware that gay men are at greater risk of emotional and mental health problems. These can also be made worse by HIV and its treatment.
We have created a slide kit on providing emotional support for gay men. The slides contain common triggers and consequences of mental and emotional issues. They also include support tools and strategies as well as case studies to start discussions.
You can work through the slides on your own or as a group.
How are you feeling?
The leaflet can be taken to the doctor, nurse or health advisor and used help start a conversation about emotional and mental wellbeing.
Please also see our links page for groups in your area that provide information and support.
