We continue our series on mental health with a look at the psychological dimensions of HIV/AIDS — from the trauma of receiving the news to the side effects of brought on by AIDS medications. Farai Chideya talks with Carla Bailey, co-chair of the Los Angeles County Commission on HIV; Regan Hoffmann, editor-in-chief of POZ magazine; and Dr. Michelle Clark, a psychiatrist whose work has focused on HIV/AIDS.
