Registered Charity in England and Wales (1001582)
Research from the WHO, the UN, Rape Crisis, NAT and BHIVA amongst others, evidences that HIV positive women who have experienced past trauma are at significant and increased risk of poor mental health, extreme social exclusion and lower adherence to HIV medication. Therefore, Re:Assure provides targeted interventions to HIV positive women to help them overcome past traumas and improve their mental and physical health.
Annually, the programme supports 150 women directly and 500 indirectly. Activities to solve the above problems include: psychological therapy; ‚ÄòSelf expression, sex and relationships‚Äô and ‚ÄòTree of Life‚Äô training courses; peer support; ESOL, computer and employment workshops; volunteering, and sign posting. Re:Assure also provides expert reports and support at immigration tribunals. Activities are managed by a Clinical Psychologist and peer support volunteers.
