Emotional Health and HIV

Posted on March 26, 2018

Since discovering I was HIV positive, life has been a roller coaster ride. Between the emotions, the questions and the uncertainty, it can become overwhelming. - A member of myHIVteam

On myHIVteam, the social network and online support group for those living with HIV, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Emotional health is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

"How do you cope with depression and HIV?"
"Do any of you take antidepressants in addition to your HIV meds?"
