|Mission||Being Alive is a peer-driven organization for people living with HIV/AIDS specializing in supportive services, education, wellness, and self-empowerment.|
WELLNESS CENTER: Being Alive provides complimentary therapies to our members in a safe and supportive environment at our West Hollywood facility. These services are provided by caring HIV-sensitive practitioners. Being Alive offers a strong menu of therapies which include: Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy, Chiropractic Care, Yoga, Acupuncture and Reiki.
ANTIOCH ALIVE: A partnership of Being Alive and The LGBT Specialization at Antioch University Los Angeles. In service of all living with HIV/AIDS, and with histories rooted in social justice and the psychological liberation of LGBT people, we offer psycho-therapeutic services at Being Alive through counseling, workshops, social activities, and creative projects by student therapists trained in a visionary LGBT Affirmative model that supports, celebrates and advocates for the validity of LGBT persons and their inherently healthy sexualities and gender expressions.
EDUCATION: Being Alive believes that in order for a person to take charge of his/her medical care, access to current medical information and services is imperative. We accomplish these goals with a myriad of education programs including our treatment-based Newsletter, our monthly Medical Update series featuring prominent physicians working in HIV, our resource-rich website, and our Speakers’ Bureau.
EMOTIONAL SUPPORT: Being Alive offers individualized peer-to-peer support with trained HIV+ counselors as well as group support facilitated by trained HIV+ leaders. Whether you are recently diagnosed, or a long term survivor dealing with everyday challenges, we have a safe and confidential space where you can share your concerns.
SOCIAL EVENTS: Getting people living with HIV/AIDS out of isolation is part of our mission, and we are well-known for our fun and entertaining social events such as field trips to movies, plays and the Hollywood Bowl, day-trips and BBQs, and access to our Ceramics Studio.
