General Info

HELP meetings are open to people with herpes and/or HPV and their partners. The meetings have varying formats including discussion, videos, and speakers. The purpose is to share our strength, knowledge, and experience. Many of our members have 10 or more years experience dealing with herpes. Feedback from other members often helps to see things from a different, more positive perspective.


All contact with Metro Detroit HELP is strictly confidential. We will not share your name or other information about you with any other person or organization for any reason at any time.


If you would like to meet with an experienced member before your first meeting please feel free to contact us. We can meet with you at anytime, including just before the actual meeting time.
