Join Being Alive

When you become a member of Being Alive, our programs and services are at your disposal. We are dedicated to giving quality support and resources to the HIV+ community in order to maintain your quality of life, even after diagnosis. We understand what you are going though because we too are living with HIV/AIDS.

Being Alive has established a number of programs to build a healthier and more powerful community of HIV+ people. Free to our members, we have devised a number of programs which focus on coping with the diagnosis,  group support, mental health, social events, HIV education, and wellness activities, such as, yoga, acupuncture, ceramics, etc. We are also available to walk you through health care, advocacy, new treatments, and any other issue which may be weighing you.

Our Antioch Alive mental health program we are particularly proud of, boasting the only of it's kind in the whole of the U.S. Antioch Alive was created in partnership with Antioch University to form a LGBT-affirmative specialization therapy program because there was a need. We also understand the HIV+ community has different needs when it comes to mental health. Blazing a new path, our extensively trained staff looks for symptoms such as medicine fatigue, which is often confused with depression as an example. Correctly diagnosing symptoms allows your treatment to be more effective. Giving you a happier life.

Please join us because we need you as much as you need us. All that is required for your free membership is valid identification, a medical document with your HIV+ diagnosis, and proof of a Los Angeles county address. That's it.
