Phoenix is a 1.5 day workshop for all people recently diagnosed with HIV, providing a confidential and supportive space to learn how to deal with managing your HIV diagnosis. The workshop sessions are March 15 6-9pm, and March 16 9am-5pm.
You may have been recently diagnosed or perhaps you have been living with HIV for some time. It is not necessarily about how long you have been living with HIV, it’s about seeking the support and information you need.
The workshop is facilitated by peers living with HIV and will feature sessions from an HIV specialist doctor and a counsellor with experience working with clients living with HIV.
This is a free workshop, and you don’t need Medicare to attend either.
The Friday evening introduction session includes pizza for supper, and the Saturday full day session includes a healthy lunch, as well as morning and afternoon tea.
The group has the option of attending (at participants own cost) a post-workshop social get-together. This will be at a nearby venue for dinner or drinks and provide an opportunity for participants to make lasting connections with workshop facilitators.
What can you expect from the workshop?
- Meet others living with HIV and hear and share experiences
- Have your questions answered by HIV specialists and peers, including information about latest treatments options, long acting injectables and other options
- Explore and discuss issues around disclosure, negotiating sex and relationships
- Learn about other HIV supports and services within South Australia and nationally
