Working through this trauma can take years of hard work, support and encouragement.
Of the many care leavers Brighter Path works with, some carry huge trauma from childhood (sometimes from before they went into orphanages, for others arising from their time in orphanages.). These young people have often experienced sexual, physical or psychological abuse in their early years, and for some for a great part of their life. Working through this trauma can take years of hard work, support and encouragement.
One of the many ways we support these care leavers is by providing art therapy in conjunction with mental health support. Our partnership with the wonderful professionals at Vista Counselling allows us to give some of our most vulnerable clients the best possible help.
