A friend of ours has just contacted us about a peer group called “The Institute of Many” (TIM) for people living with HIV. Here is what he had to say:
“I’m writing to you with regards to research on the impact of stigma in Dublin. I’m a member of a peer group on Facebook called The Institute of Many (TIM) which is for people living with HIV. A fellow member posted the AIDS Map article about the study on stigma in Dublin and couldn’t help but feel the need to write to you in the hope of being able to reach out to people living with HIV in Dublin and the rest of Ireland as I have seen the difference TIM has made for not only me but for many others.
The Facebook group is a private group and currently has around 1100 members, mostly from Australia, with a growing number of people from around the world. The group can be found here.
There’s also a website which includes the values here.
I’m sure that many would find TIM to be an invaluable resource. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.”
You contact us, we’ll contact our new friend.
