Indigenous Mental Health & Wellness Program

Indigenous Mental Health and Wellness Program

Our Indigenous Mental Health and Wellness Worker provides wholistic and culture-based supports in response to the mental health and addictions of Urban Indigenous individuals and families. The worker will implement trauma-informed and strengths-based cultural approaches to address community-based mental health and wellbeing concerns.

• provide wrap-around services and strength based action plans for each individual to address goals in the area of mental health, pre-treatment, treatment and aftercare planning

• working with Elders and traditional teachers and provide access to healing ceremonies

• conduct peer counselling sessions

• conduct group counselling, sharing circles, teaching circles

• work one to one on building and maintaining healthy relationships

• deliver mental health/addiction workshops and presentations
