BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - A new program has been set up to help Camp Fire survivors with emotional healing.
"Thrive" has been launched by the North Valley Community Foundation and is an initiative to focus on the emotional healing of kids, families and individuals.
The foundation has committed more than $2 million for the new initiative.
The program is a collaboration of organizations and agencies "committed to engaging in work surrounding the impact of childhood trauma across all generations."
"In the midst of a global pandemic, another deadly wildfire in our county and repeated traumatic community events, the need to come together to explore healing, resilience and collective impact could not be more critical to the health and well-being of our community," said Danelle Campbell, Thrive program director.
"Thrive" will begin on Oct. 27 with a daylong event, followed by another event for parents and caregivers called "A Healing-Centered Approach."
A video series produced by No Limit Generation will also be premiered after the event. The “Building Forward: Children’s Resilience Initiative” series was created in collaboration with community leaders and leading local and national mental health experts.
