Community Healing

Community Healing

"Community healing is a dynamic process that continues to evolve through experimentation and learning but, regardless of the process chosen by a community, the goal of healing is to restore a sense of balance and wellness within the victim, offender, their families and the community. " - Ed Buller, Director, Aboriginal Corrections Policy Unit Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Canada

Cultural Arts

Rootead's Cultural Arts creates cross-cultural communication and heals the internal self and the community. It centers the needs of the BIPOC community members by creating intentional space to celebrate Black and Brown heritage. It is done in a way open to all but encourages under-served communities to access various cultural art forms easily.

Black & Brown Therapy Testimonials

My experience was great! The BBTC answered all of my questions, and helped me find someone who fit my requirements. I really wanted a queer, or affirming, POC, and the BBTC helped me find someone.                - Anonymous
So far, the experience has been amazing because of the tenacious support of the BBTC. All emails were quickly responded to, and I felt finding help for me was important for the BBTC. I was happy to hear that therapists are vetted to ensure that their values align with the BBTC. It's still early days but I am truly grateful. - Anonymous
I'm grateful for the access that has been provided to me to take care of my whole body, where prior to this initiative, I could not foresee when mental wellness could have been accessible in my near future.                - Anonymous
