Donate to BCAT
Help support our arts therapies for children and adults with mental health and also support our arts in health community work.
“It was not only the children who benefited from the Arts Therapies sessions! Their parents also participated and gained considerable new insight into their children’s behaviours and how strategies might be developed to facilitate greater understanding between themselves and their children. We hope that BCAT can continue to find sufficient funding to continue to work with us”.
