As part of our commitment to provide community mental health to our community, through funding made possible from the Alameda County Office of HIV Care, the Pacific Center provides free mental health services to folks living with HIV in our county who are eligible for Ryan White Services. Qualified clients can access individual and/or group counseling at no cost. The mental health services are provided by pre-licensed and post licensed clinicians who are trained in dealing with specific needs and issues pertaining to this population.
Living Fully With HIV
Living Fully with HIV is a recurring Ryan White funded group that meets weekly for 9 sessions via video/teleconferencing.
In addition to these mental health services, Pacific Center collaborates with the HIV Program at Asian Health Services, now known as HCH510, or Honeycomb Hideout 510 to offer free rapid testing. Under COVID-19, HCH510 services are available via telemedicine style. Services include HIV testing, PrEP and PEP, STI/STD Testing, HIV Care services, insurance navigation and enrollment services. With every HIV test, a para-professional counseling session is also provided. Contact HCH 510 at 510-972-4483 to learn more about the test, the California Family PACT program and youth clinic.
