‘It’s important to be responsive to the diverse needs of Indigenous communities through programs and services that are designed by Indigenous peoples and delivered in a culturally appropriate way’
Todd Smith, Minister of Children, Community and Social Services, announced up to $5 million in funding for new and expanded Indigenous mental health and addictions services, including support for continued community-led responses to social crisis.
“It will support mental health training, development, and support for frontline workers, including youth-focused outreach workers who provide culturally appropriate support,” says a news release.
