Are you currently receiving or providing counseling services?

Researchers from Adelphi University are conducting a study examining therapists’ use of techniques in psychotherapy.

We invite —
• Clients who are currently receiving, or were receiving counseling services in the past month
• Mental Health Professionals who are providing individual counseling services for clients aged +18.
To participate in a 5-7 minutes survey about their experience in therapy.

The survey is quick, interesting, and user-friendly and can hopefully help reflect on what is going on in your therapy sessions.

Upon completion of the study, you will have an opportunity to participate in a raffle for several $30 Amazon gift cards!

The study is anonymous and voluntary and your responses will remain completely confidential.
There is a version for therapists and clients and if you fit both categories (you are a therapist who is also receiving psychotherapy), it would be wonderful if you can fill out both links.

If you are a client receiving counseling, you can fill out this link about your experience as a client-

Have you had difficulties providing Ryan White clients with sufficient mental health care?

At the next HIV MHTF meeting (01/13/16) we will have a discussion about the service caps that are currently in place (ie: a 12-session per year), and how we can bring this up to the Commission on HIV &/or DHSP, as it did come up during this month’s Commission meeting.

Attached is a memo which attempts to explain the underspent Ryan White funds in LA County. this memo was repeatedly cited in the Commission meeting. Further, DHSP denied that they have ever rejected an extension request, despite audience testimony which countered that claim.
