MDH Detroit HELP Meeting

HELP meetings are open to people with herpes 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.

You can also contact us for further description of our meetings. Please join us.

Parking


Parking options are:

Free Valet from DMC lobby. Valet goes home before the meeting ends so you get your car yourself from the DMC Brady Street garage after the meeting by telling security you used valet. They will give you the keys.

Metered street parking at John R and Brady Avenue. Max. of 1 hour but I did not get a ticket parking here a few times past 1 hour.

Park in the WSU parking structure on John R at Brady Avenue. It says not for DMC but if you take in your parking ticket to the DMC security desk, they will validate it so you can get free parking. Need to provide a first initial and last name to get it validated (they do not ask for ID for the validation). Otherwise, parking is $6 here.

Car Pools

If you are interested in carpooling to the HELP meetings please contact us. If we can we'll put you in contact with another person near you.

Newcomers

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.

Facilitator

We need volunteers to host and facilitate for our monthly meetings. We'd like to share the load and get the benefit and experience of many people. You can volunteer to host them on an ongoing basis or volunteer to host one or two. If you'd like to help facilitate a meeting you can find out more here.
