How do I know if Mental Health services are right for me?

We are fortunate to have a number of teams at PA Thrive Partnership with a Wide range of expertise. If you are living with HIV, you can start by getting connected with a case manager, who will help to connect you with the right mental health services for you, even if you’re unfamiliar with the mental health landscape.

Who should seek Mental Health services?

It’s recommended that anyone ask their provider about the benefits of MHS. Receiving services does not mean that lthere is something wrong with you or that you are “crazy”. Your mind, just like your body, is a part of your overall health, and people living with HIV often have much to gain from engaging with MHS.

If I enter into Mental Health Services, will this be confidential? What if I don't have easy access to transportation?

You’re in luck, because Journey to a Trauma Informed Life is located in the same building as our Erie office. Confidentiality is taken very seriously by our staff, and your status both as a person living with HIV and a person receiving mental health services are of the utmost importance to us. Additionally, transportation can be provided to eligible recipients of case management services, and online meetings (known as “Telehealth”) can be arranged for MHS.
