Friends of HEAL Foundation Limited
Friends of HEAL Foundation Limited is a small-scale charity established in 2012. Their main activity is registered as mental healthcare primarily serving children - aged 6 to under 15 youth - 15 to under 25 migrants, refugees or asylum seekers people at risk of homelessness/ people experiencing homelessness victims of crime (including family violence) victims of disaster.
The FHEAL Foundation aims to offer direct relief of the helplessness, misfortune and distress experienced by children and young people of refugee background, and our activities have aligned well with this goal. The Foundation enables school-based Arts Therapy and Music Therapy for refugees. This involves supporting their education and cultural integration via the therapeutic relationship and creative therapy activities. Some newly arrived young refugees have experienced great challenges in their lives of dislocation and forced immigration, and have often received little or no education. They need help to settle into learning; to progress in their new lives. With the assistance of creative therapies, suffering is reduced, acculturation is assisted, and well-being is improved. FHEAL is dedicated to assisting these young newly arrived refugees in coping with past trauma and present settlement, by providing creative therapists in schools. Thirteen years of creative therapy at Milpera State High School in Brisbane, in the HEAL Program (Home of Expressive Arts in Learning), has demonstrated creative therapies can make a positive difference to mental health outcomes. The FHEAL Foundation wants to expand creative therapies into other high schools to assist more refugee young people. FHEAL has also been busy raising the funds to make the therapy happen.
