Positive Self-Management Program – Gilbert Centre

The Gilbert Centre is looking for agencies to partner with to train and facilitate the Positive Self-Management Program (PSMP) at their locations.

The Positive Self-Management Program (PSMP) is an interactive six-week program for people living with HIV. Program participants and peer leaders meet once a week for 2.5 hours covering topics such as medication adherence, managing fatigue, relaxation, self-advocacy, working with healthcare professionals and communication skills.

In 2016/17, the Gilbert Centre for Social and Support Services (Gilbert Centre) received a five-year Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) grant to deliver the Positive Self-Management Program. This grant allows the Gilbert Centre to deliver 17 programs in Ontario. Master trainers from the Gilbert Centre will train eight peer leaders in the PSMP. These eight leaders will then deliver the program to people with HIV at different AIDS service organizations (ASOs) in Ontario.
