Finding mental health care in Duval County, FL

Sep 29, 2013

I would like to know if there are any counselors in Duval County FL with a specialty in HIV. Also specialty dealing with serodiscordant couples. I have had so many doors/phones slammed in my face or no response at all. I have insurance and need help. Newly diagnosed, and having substance abuse & depression.

Response from Dr. Fawcett

Thanks for writing. Finding a therapist, especially one with expertise in HIV/AIDS, can be a complex process. A good match will be highly individualized. I don't know of anyone specific but I think you could get some leads from the Metropolitan Jacksonville area HIV Health Services Planning Council. Rainbow House, the local LGBT community center, might also be able to help. Other listings of mental health professionals such as this one from Psychology Today may be helpful.

I wish you all the best. Your willingness to seek help is important and finding the right match may take some persistence.

Be well,
