MIGRANT + REFUGEE CRISIS PROJECTS: TIJUANA + GREECE

TIJUANA
2019

We are supporting the migrant community at the border of California and Mexico, serving dozens of women, children, and families via expressive arts and movement.  Working collaboratively with local non-profits and NGOs, we are working to provide sustainable mental health strategies/interventions with this community as we continue in 2019-2020.

Here are some photos from our work in Tijuana:

GREECE

In 2016, 2017 and 2018 a small HAPPI team collaborated multiple NGOs other to provide mental health services in the form of  culturally sensitive, trauma-informed expressive arts therapy activities and yoga to over 75 children and families in a predominantly Syrian refugee camp near Idomeni, Greece, in Lesvos and in Athens.  We continue to seek funds to support our work with families in Greece.
