Description

The World Health Organization pyramid of mental health services clarifies how HIV prevention and care programs can address behavioral health comorbidities without exclusively relying on specialty mental health providers. A lively discussion that includes people with lived experience and video examples will be employed to demonstrate how this pyramid works.

Learning Objectives

  1. Understand the full range of strategies that can be used to address behavioral health problems.
  2. Plan for programmatic changes that utilize self-care and informal services to address the behavioral health needs of people with HIV or at risk for HIV.
  3. Examine the barriers and facilitators for involving all HIV care providers in meeting the behavioral health needs of their patients.
