Peer support – someone to talk to

Have you just found out that you have HIV or have you had it for some time? Would you like someone to talk to? Someone like you living with HIV. There may be a lot that is new when you have learned you’re HIV positive and you may have a lot of questions and thoughts. It can be good to have someone who listens, understands and can share their experiences.

Posithiva Gruppen offers peer support. This means receiving support from someone who shares your experience. Peers are people with different experiences, backgrounds, ages and genders, but with the common denominator of living with HIV. The conversation is on your terms and the peers are bound by professional secrecy.

You can talk to one of our peers in English, Swedish or Spanish. If you need support in another language, a telephone interpreter is available.
