• To better retain our younger population we have started a monthly Movie Night. Theses night are geared towards teens and young MSMs. We start the night with a movie and snacks, and then facilitate discussion both relevant to the movie and appropriate to care. Movies are selected based on their underlying theme and ability to spark discussion. Topics for discussion will focus on empowerment, acceptance, self-reliance, inner strength, etc. This is completely a Consumer-led activity.
• Older teens are more resistant to care and treatment, and want maximum results with minimum effort. They are our hardest population to retain in care.
