The Pittsburgh AIDS Task Force (PATF) has begun a volunteer mentoring program designed to connect individuals newly diagnosed with HIV with a person who has lived with HIV for at least three years. The goal is to provide support for newly diagnosed individuals to help them cope with the diagnosis. Support could include phone calls, sharing techniques on coping and information related to HIV treatment, passing the time or just hanging out. For those accepted into the program there is an interview process and a two-day training.
