HIV/AIDS support group finder

HealthyWomen has put together support group options to unite those affected by HIV/AIDS. Support groups can vary in format with in-person groups, virtual groups, social media pages, blogs, mobile apps, and others. Support groups help connect people who are going through similar experiences and can offer HIV/AIDS-related information and advice.

The following resources offer options for support groups and healthcare professionals by zip code or state and city. In addition to the groups listed below, you can:

  • Call your local hospital and ask about its HIV/AIDS support programs

  • Ask your social worker to suggest support groups

  • Talk to other patients who have tried support groups and they may be able to recommend some that might work for you as well

  • Find your local community center, which usually has information about local resources and other support groups

  • Ryan White, medical provider to the HIV/AIDS program

These support groups offer phone, email, video call, and virtual support meeting options. They also provide information for the person living with HIV/AIDS, family members or anyone concerned about someone else with HIV/AIDS.

These support groups are found on social media sites that offer ways to post anonymous questions, share tips, or provide advice. Additionally, some options offer HIV/AIDS blog topics ranging from events to living well to research and news.
