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.
Substance Use Counseling and Intervention
TPAN's EPIC (Empowering Positive Innovative Change) program provides participants with counseling to reduce substance use and vulnerability to HIV as well as access to treatment for co-existing behavioral health, HIV, and hepatitis conditions. Participants who are ready to address substance abuse issues will receive referrals to our program partners at Southwood Interventions and Haymarket Center. EPIC is open to African-American same gender loving men over the age of 18.
