While the reasons are unclear, studies have shown that, in the general population, women are two times more likely to experience depression than men. Further, women living with HIV across the gender spectrum are even more likely than women in the general population to experience challenges to their mental health. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the isolation, grief, economic instability, and radical change to daily lives it has wrought worldwide have had negative effects on people's mental health while increasing barriers to mental health care access.

In acknowledgement of Mental Health Awareness Month in May, we have compiled selections from The Well Project's collection of resources and personal stories addressing mental health for women living with HIV.
