Research regarding HIV+ support groups

Question

I am trying to find information (statistics, studies, and other research) that outlines the effects of organized support groups on people effected with HIV.

I can easily find info regarding number of cases, etc. But nothing specific to the benefits of support groups.

Any ideas??

Answer

I don't know of any published data on the effects of support groups. I would recommend researching the commonly used informational sites. A good place to start is:
