Navigating Mental Health Care: A Girl Like Me LIVE

Submitted on Jun 29, 2022


Women living with HIV across the gender spectrum are more likely than women in the general population to experience challenges to their mental health. In many communities, accessing mental health care can carry stigma, and can even be discouraged by some family members and friends. Additionally, women, often primary caregivers, will care for others before caring for themselves.

In the 20th episode of A Girl Like Me LIVE, host and The Well Project program manager Ciarra "Ci Ci" Covin was joined by Raenisha Love, LCSW. They discussed mental health care from their perspectives as a therapist who offers non-judgmental, empathic services to individuals across the gender spectrum and a woman living with HIV who has sought mental health care.
