The Be Brave Bridge

The Be Brave Bridge is a comprehensive online counselling platform that provides crucial support for survivors of childhood sexual abuse, helping children, teens and their families when they need it most.

Every year, more than 100 children and youth come to Little Warriors’ Be Brave Ranch to receive intensive on-site mental health support and trauma treatment to address the pain of childhood sexual abuse. Unfortunately, so many more are on our waiting list. Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, they cannot receive in-person care. Yet in situations like this, vulnerable children and teens are more isolated and at risk than ever.

That’s why we’ve developed the Be Brave Bridge online program to empower children and adolescents on the wait-list. It provides a bridge to critical mental health trauma supports and world-class programs, fully accessible through the Internet. This allows our therapists and counsellors to stay in contact with children and teens who are otherwise isolated and/or unable to receive timely support.

COVID-19 and beyond

Following COVID-19, these programs will become part of our ongoing effort to help children and youth stabilize before they arrive at the Be Brave Ranch. We are also optimistic that, for some children and teens, the online program will provide them with enough skills and tools that they will not require the intensive treatment provided at the Be Brave Ranch.

How it works

The Be Brave Bridge features three unique components:

  • Online Parent/Caregiver Interactive Program
    Helps parents and caregivers supporting children and teens with a trauma history.
  • Online Adolescent Interactive Program
    Teaches and supports traumatized teens.
  • Online Children’s Interactive Program
    Teaches and supports traumatized children.

The Be Brave Bridge also helps kids, teens and parents/caregivers in the Be Brave Ranch program by supporting them between stays and after they return home.

It is our dream that once this program is up and running, we can translate it into all languages to help people around the world.

Help build the bridge
