The Arcadia Foundation’s vision is a world where children and youth learn and thrive in a safe and healthy environment, and they truly believe in investing in children and youth.
As champions of education, human rights, and the arts, the Arcadia Foundation is familiar with how mental health challenges and lack of access to crucial supports impacts young people. That is why they chose to support Covenant House Vancouver’s Mental Health Program with a generous and life-changing gift.
At Covenant House, youth have an opportunity to address any counselling and psychiatric needs in a safe and supportive environment. When a youth is struggling with their mental health or with substance use, a Social Worker on our Case Management Team refers them to one of our in-house Registered Clinical Counsellors (RCC).
The young person’s therapy may involve one-to-one counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Art Therapy, referral to a psychiatrist, referral to a treatment centre, or a combination of services that work best for the individual.
Thank you, Arcadia Foundation, for helping youth access critical mental health supports and changing young lives for the better!
