East Van Dan’s is a therapeutic program designed to meet the needs of youth in the Downtown Eastside and East Vancouver who have cognitive disorders, spectrum disorders, mental health challenges, and living with the impacts of trauma. This series of workshops will be trauma-informed, facilitated by two specially-trained therapists, and include art, music, cultural, and land-based therapies. Youth will also be involved in group life-skills and one-to-one counselling sessions.
