Mental Health & HIV[e]Education
Despite the fact that extensive research repeatedly demonstrates that there is a relationship between HIV and psychiatric problems, this topic is rarely addressed as part of existing care and treatment programs. The aim the Mental Health[e]Education program is to provide healthcare workers with complete and up-to-date information on numerous aspects of HIV/AIDS and mental health issues. The course consists of 8 modules, all written by renowned experts in the field.
The course covers the relationship between HIV/AIDS and mental health: special screenings methods for identifying mental health problems in PLWH, and the social, personal and biological factors that contribute to the development of mental health problems and addiction in PLWH.
