Healthy Relationships & RESPECT
While ABBA and The Mu Crew focus on spreading prevention messaging, the groups are all inclusive and anyone regardless of HIV status is welcome to join either group. In addition to the community offered by the Mpowerment programs, ARC Ohio also offers the Healthy Relationship program for individuals who are already HIV Positive.
The Healthy Relationships program offers a supportive environment where they can work through and discuss issues surrounding disclosing their HIV status to other individuals with an emphasis on sexual partners. This group of individuals have a safe and confidential setting where they can engage in conversation about sex, dating, disclosure and meeting other positive gay men.
