PERSAD CENTER provides an array of services to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS and help individuals who are HIV+ to get the care they need.


PERSAD Center is committed to stopping the spread of HIV by providing information that helps individuals to reduce or eliminate risks of contracting HIV and by providing interventions to help individuals who are at high risk for HIV transmission. PERSAD has HIV specialists who can meet with you to assess your risks and provide you with information to keep yourself safe. PERSAD Center also provides interventions that have been proven effective by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control). Contact us to learn more about a program that would assist you. 


For HIV+ individuals, counseling can assist in understanding HIV infection, finding needed resources and medical care, and adjusting to medication and treatments. Our services help individuals to manage fears and losses, and make decisions regarding disclosure, re-infection risks, relationships, work, and health management. We offer individual therapy, couples counseling, and support groups. PERSAD Center can help you navigate the challenges of living with HIV.
