Description of Service
Formerly known as the Southern Colorado AIDS Project.
The diagnosis of and challenges of living with HIV/AIDS can be extremely difficult. Individuals living with the disease may feel isolated and overwhelmed with multiple barriers to health and success. These challenges can often result in depression, anxiety, and overall mental health concerns that sometimes go undiagnosed and untreated.
Counseling is provided in a non-judgmental accepting environment by licensed therapists familiar with the complex issues associated with HIV/AIDS. Support groups are available in Colorado Springs and Pueblo.
SCAP also offers a Peer Support Program for individuals to learn how to manage their health and the healthcare system from individuals living with HIV. The Peer Support Program focus is "To serve, support and grow with self-management - peer mentoring for people who are HIV-positive by people who are HIV-positive through active empowerment and education.”
