Desert Sun operates three counselling programs for children aged 3 to 18. Counselling is provided free of charge on a self-referral or parent/teacher referral basis.
- Counselling in local schools: we work with School District 53 and the Osoyoos Indian Band (OIB) to provide one-on-one child and youth counselling in schools in our area, in order to help children and youth navigate mental health challenges, trauma, gender identity questions, peer challenges, and/or other stresses.
- PEACE Program: The Prevention, Education, Advocacy, Counselling and Empowerment (PEACE) Program is a free, confidential program for children and youth aged 3 to 18 who have experienced violence. For more information click here.
