AIDS Psychiatry Services

The Johns Hopkins AIDS Psychiatry Service (APS) is a multidisciplinary team formed in 1989 to provide clinical care to HIV-infected patients, as well as to develop and implement education and research programs on the psychiatric aspects of HIV infections. The APS is directed at the treatment of psychiatric conditions that drive the HIV epidemic, interfere with the treatment of HIV, or diminish the quality of life of patients infected with HIV.
