HIV and sexual health charity, Terrence Higgins Trust (THT), is starting a new support group in Sussex for gay men who are HIV positive and are not currently on any medication. The first session will take place on 15 April in central Brighton and the charity is keen to get people signed up as soon as possible.

Sue Peters, for THT in the South said: “The aim of the group is to provide a supportive environment to talk about various issues, particularly focusing on what it’s like to not be taking medication when it may seem that most other people living with HIV are taking treatment. Other issues could include disclosure of status to friends and family, relationships, and dealing with stressful situations.”

Sue adds: “This new group will provide a safe, supportive and confidential environment where people can share experiences. If you’re living with HIV, are currently not on treatment and you’d like information or support, or if you’d just like to meet people in the same boat as you, please come along.”

The first meeting is on Tuesday 15 April at 7.30pm. To attend or to find out more please call the Brighton office on 01273 764 200.
