Arctic Children and Youth Foundation – Iqaluit, NU

In an effort to integrate the clinical and cultural mental health services developing in Nunavut, the Foundation will use their grant to set up a cultural healing space and hire a bilingual (Inuktitut-English) Counsellor at the Umingmak Child and Youth Support Centre, providing options to clients who wish to have traditional healing, or counselling in their language of choice.

Canadian Mental Health Association, Yukon Division– Whitehorse, YT

The Association will invest Bell Let’s Talk funding to create an evidence-based Peer Support program and training curriculum to foster recovery and well-being for people of all ages experiencing mental health issues and illnesses and to formalize and implement the practice of peer support in the Yukon. Incorporating Northern First Nations’ perspective into the practice, the Peer Support model can easily be transferred to other peer groups to promote the positive mental health of all Yukoners.
