The +1 Peer Mentor Program is a peer-to-peer support program for people living with HIV. The program pairs people living with HIV, who are keeping up with
their medication and doctor appointments, with those who are newly diagnosed, new to treatment or re-engaging in care. Mentors must be open to providing
an intensive level of support to mentees, especially in the early days of a new or changed HIV treatment plan. A weekly, in-person meeting during the
first month of mentorship is best. After the first month, a meeting every two weeks is recommended. It is expected that mentorships will last about
six months to a year. Peers meet away from Whitman-Walker locations to discuss their experiences. Mentors and mentees are always welcome to join the
+1 Peer Mentor program.
