May 2021 - December 2021
As the 40th anniversary of HIV/AIDS being first identified approaches in June, NOAGE New Orleans is offering a free support group meeting weekly from May through December of this year to help people aged 50 and older in the New Orleans area who are living with the condition.
The first meeting will take place on Thursday, May 13th.
Meetings will initially take place on Zoom, and will eventually move to in-person gatherings. Licensed marriage and family therapist and founder of Maison Vie New Orleans Susan Harrington will facilitate the group.
Group members will meet once a week, and under the guidance of the lead therapist, will be empowered to gain a sense of connection and community among others who have also struggled with the condition, especially during the devastating isolation created by the COVID pandemic.
This group aims to help build strength and resilience through validation and understanding, while addressing a variety of shared issues, using process-oriented discussion and evidence-based therapeutic interventions.
"This free group will provide the support and resources needed for a large segment of the population who are feeling left behind. If you are out there and feeling cut off or forgotten, please know that you are not alone and that we are here for you." - Jim Meadows, Executive Director of NOAGE New Orleans
