Behavioral Health services at TPAN are affirming and strengths-based, designed for HIV-positive individuals and those vulnerable for HIV, 18 years of age and older, who are looking for compassionate support in dealing with a range of mental health and emotional issues.
All services are provided at no cost.
Individual and Couples Therapy
TPAN provides one-to-one or couples sessions with licensed mental health professional. Therapists encourage their clients to explore issues relevant to their lives, including—but not limited to—the processing of trauma, stress, physical and emotional health, relationships, and substance use. Sessions are one hour in length.
Empowering Positive Innovative Change (EPIC)
building community with peers
EPIC (Empowering Positive Innovative Change) is a holistic health overnight retreat experience for those looking to build community. EPIC serves those who are ready to learn and have conversations about important topics related to health including mental health, trauma, relationships, spirituality, and stigma related to gender identity, HIV status and race. EPIC is open to individuals regardless of HIV status – serving those living with HIV and those who are HIV negative. Although we serve young adults (ages 18-29) through the EPIC program, we also tailor retreat experiences for individuals who are over the age of 30. Please see more about who we serve below.
EPIC offers customized retreat experiences for two different age groups:
- African American young adults between the ages of 18-29, and
- Individuals over the age of 30, regardless of race
