Taking Care: Understanding and Addressing Mental Health Among Women Living with HIV was the first in our 2016 WATCH! webinar series that offers women living with HIV capacity building and training on HIV disease and treatment advocacy. During this webinar, participants received an overview of HIV science by prominent speakers including:
- Overview of Mental Health, Women and HIV, Vickie Lynn, MSW, MPH, Doctoral student, Instructor at University of South Florida, Tampa, (USF), The Well Project Community Advisory Board, A Girl Like Me blogger
- From Treatment to Healing – The Promise of Trauma-Informed Care, Edward Machtinger, MD, Professor of Medicine and Director of the Women’s HIV Program at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF)
- Krista Martel, executive director, The Well Project
Certification: The Well Project will provide a series of 5-6 webinars throughout the year. The Well Project will issue certificates of completion for those who participate in, and complete a pre- and post-assessment for all webinars. The webinars will be recorded for those who are unable to participate live and will be accessible for one month after they initially take place. If you are accessing the recording of the webinar, you still need to complete the pre-and post-assessments. A final program evaluation will also be required for the certificate of completion.
