Northern Colorado AIDS Project mission: to improve the quality of life for people living with HIV/AIDS and to help reduce the spread and stigma of the disease. NCAP does not discriminate in practices or employment opportunities on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, HIV status, disability, or any other characteristic protected by law.
NCAP is the only Colorado HIV/AIDS organization that offers in-house mental health counseling. NCAP’s counseling staff consists of Certified Addictions Counselors (CAC) and Masters/Bachelors of Social Work (M/BSW) who have specialized knowledge of the mental health concerns of those living with HIV/AIDS and their loved ones.
There is also counseling available for prevention concerns. People who receive prevention counseling include the partners of HIV-positive people, intravenous drug users, and other high-risk populations. For those who want treatment for a substance abuse problem, NCAP offers referrals to community substance abuse treatment programs, and in some cases can access money to pay for in-patient and out-patient treatment.
