Group Name: Latinos Positivos Toronto
Description: Latinos Positivos was founded to respond to the need for HIV positive Latinos to build a community that reflected the Latino culture, provided services in Spanish and was focused solely for and by HIV positive individuals. We provide free and confidential services and programs for Spanish-speaking men and women living with HIV. We are a community working together to alleviate the barriers that you may have if you live with HIV or have been recently diagnosed with the virus.
Peer counselling is a type of support offered by another person living with HIV, these individuals (peers) have previous training but do not have an official designation as counsellor, psychologist or psychiatrist. The counselling is based on a personal similar transition or experience and the outcomes of these experiences help others in assertive decision making by attentive listening, providing information or giving referrals to another service at Latinos Positivos Toronto or another community partner. Other services at Latinos Positivos include: translation, interpretations, settlement servicdes, and HIV/AIDS prevention.
