Family violence

After attending children's counselling at GenWest for several months, Aryan wrote this story about his experience of family violence.

Illustration by Aryan, 10 year old counselling client. Brown puppy with black legs, back and tail. It is smiling. It is on a light green background.

Aryan hopes that his story will help other children who are going through family violence, and show them that they are not alone. Read more about Aryan's story.
