Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: ORCHID Group
Participants in the ORCHID group will receive an online intervention that improves depressive symptoms and positive affect (emotions) for clinic-based persons living with HIV, for up to 6 months.
Behavioral: ORCHID
The intervention includes 8 modules, which are delivered online, approximately 30 minutes per session, and participants will engage a minimum of once per week. Participants may also meet online or in-person with a navigator, up to 4 times.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of Participants who Complete ORCHID [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]
    Average across all participants of the proportion of participants who login to all 8 ORCHID intervention sessions, calculated as total number of sessions opened (0-8) divided by 8.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Depression as measured by Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]
    Depression will be measured using the PHQ-9 (range 0 to 27), higher scores indicate higher levels of depressive symptoms

  2. Positive Affect as measured by Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS) [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]
    Positive affect will be measured using the PANAS, range is 10 to 50, higher scores indicate higher levels of positive emotions.
