First Nations Health Authority Early Years Resources
In recognition of the traditional, cultural parenting practices of our Aboriginal communities and families, Credit Union funding allowed us to print Aboriginal childhood health and wellness resources.

These included:
Indigenous Child and Youth Mental Health (MCFD)
During COVID-19, our office is open and all our services continue to be available including: Intake, Psychiatry and 1:1 therapy, however we are providing these services via telephone or Skype or Zoom.
We are in the process of contacting all our wait listed clients and offering support to the families whether that be resources, worksheets for the children or parents and weekly/biweekly check in. We will also be soon offering a Zoom Parent Group to our clients. If you would like to refer a child please contact me or our main line at 250-741-5701 and we will assist you with organizing or supplying the information to have an Intake completed.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
