Art therapy

ACE considers mental health to be an essential part of the healthy growth  and development of our students. Therapy can help favela youth feel more comfortable with who they are and who they can become, as well as help them start to understand the situation they live in and the options outside of the favela. One reason that so many favela youth turn to drug trafficking is that in many cases it is simply seen as another job in the community. Having a therapist to help youth realize that joining the gangs is not “just another job” and that there are other opportunities, will be an invaluable addition to the community centre.
