Montréal , Tuesday, January 20, 2015
Bell Let’s Talk and Bell Aliant are investing $150,000 in the Nunatsiavut Government’s Aullak sangilivallianginnatuk - Going Off, Growing Strong program to enhance mental health services for youth in Nain, Newfoundland and Labrador.
Going Off, Growing Strong matches experienced and trusted adult role models with youth to help teach them a variety of outdoor skills. Participants go out in groups and the youth are taught how to hunt, fish, collect firewood, navigate on the land, and prepare wild foods. Participants also help the community by preparing wild food for the community freezer and distribute it to elders. This unique program will help develop the mental health, resilience and social connections of its participants
