Karumahs Peer Focus Group

training_21Karumah is offering an opportunity for people living with HIV to be part of a ‘Peer Focus Group” of positive people who will be provided with training and attend focus group meetings with the view of rolling ‘something’ out into the community. What this something looks like will depend on the group and discussions at group focus meetings. The training includes

  • Mental Health/Wealth – run by Dee Brooks Jeder Institute
  • Building resilience – run by Positive Life and will include components of train the trainer and Genesis program
  • Health Literacy and the Role of treatment – run by Pacific Clinic Nathan Ryder.

It’s an opportunity to be creative and make a difference in the wider community on some level. For those that have put their hand up for this group, many thanks, for the others I hope you see this as an opportunity.
