On February 1, The Support Partnership for Hepatitis C (TSP) launched a new project to connect people living with hepatitis C to resources and services in their communities.
TSP is a collaboration between 5 community non-profits:
HealthPro (formerly Hep-C ALERT) -- Fort Lauderdale, FL
Hepatitis C Association -- Scotch Plains, NJ
Hepatitis Education Project -- Seattle, WA
Hep C Connection -- Denver, CO
Project Inform -- San Francisco, CA
P aims to improve the well-being of people affected by viral hepatitis. Trained peer counselors will provide emotional support, health information, and relevant referrals, working with callers to set health-related goals related to all stages of living with hepatitis C -- from risk assessment and HCV testing through considering treatment and improving quality of life. Counselors will follow-up with callers to help them follow through with their decisions.
The new national helpline can be reached toll-free at 877-HELP-4-HEP (877-435-7443), via email at ***@****, or on the web at www.help4hep.org. The phone helpline is staffed Monday through Friday, 9 am to 7 pm EST (6 am to 4 pm PST).
TSP maintains an up-to-date national database of 25,000 referral resources. The project is creating interactive referral maps showing local resources and services including community health centers, liver disease specialists, and hepatitis C support groups. Maps are available now for partners' states and others are under development.
