DRUGS, MENTAL HEALTH, SEX and STIGMAPresented by Camden Tilley
The project focuses on exploring the psychology behind individuals who have received a positive HIV diagnosis, specifically how stigma from the community is perceived and internally reflected upon. How seemingly harmless words such as "unclean" and "dirty" can have a serious toll on an individual's mental health after a prolonged period.
What you say and how you act towards others can have serious consequences, so before you open your mouth or respond to that Grindr message, learn what it really means to be HIV positive in this day and age. And who knows, you might just be surprised what you may learn.
