Emotional Support ACASC

In the middle of the pandemic in 2020, ACASC assisted more than 180 people in the emotional support project with support from the Department of Health of Catalonia. Depression and anxiety have been on the rise during this pandemic, and many people with HIV continue to feel rejected which has impacts on their self-esteem. It also has encouraged more people to isolate themselves and give up on the idea of sharing their vital experiences with those outside of the HIV world. Depression can push a person with HIV to give up on their medication.
