Colour in Care and Care in Colour
The ‘Kleur in Zorg en Zorg in Kleur’ projection is subsidised by the Joint Community Commission, and is a twin-community project from Solentra in Brussels which provides accessible and efficient mental health care to children with a migration background and their families.
With a focus on human rights and by way of our own PACCT method (Psychiatry Assisting a Cultural diverse Community in creating healing Ties), the project aims to promote health, well-being and integration.
Within this framework, we operate on a broad ecological scale (see the Bronfenbrenner model), wherein we mobilise all partners from the field (clients, professionals and others) and get them involved in the creation of concise requests for assistance, diagnosis and therapy planning, which can then be supported by all parties.
This project is based on close contact between the players, the reinforcement of resilience and cultural sensitivity.
Our Brussels Solentra support workers are specialised in ethnotherapeutics and trauma. Upon request, we can also organised educational and training courses.
