The purpose

The purpose of this study is to evaluate if a group-based mental health intervention called Sauti ya Vijana (The Voice of Youth) designed to address mental health challenges faced by adolescents in Tanzania is acceptable and feasible and if it improves mental health, antiretroviral therapy (ART) adherence, and virologic outcomes among HIV-positive adolescents as compared to youth receiving treatment as usual. Mental health intervention sessions will take place three times a month for approximately four months in groups of eight to ten youth based on age and sex. Caregivers will attend two sessions to support the youth and provide the guardian perspective on caring for HIV-positive adolescents. The investigator hypothesizes the mental health intervention will be acceptable, feasible, and will improve mental health and ART adherence among participating youth and this improvement will be sustained over time.
