“My role is important because I advocate for my clients, help them navigate the health care system, connect them to resources and refer them to cultural supports. Being an Indigenous health liaison is what I envisioned my nursing career to involve. I have always wanted to be an advocate for First Nations people.”

It’s Mental Health Week and we’re spotlighting some of the health care champions who work in mental health and substance use, and various programs across our health region.

“I believe in the holistic approach to health and in the medicine wheel. I feel that health is more than just a western approach and that all aspects – mental, emotional, spiritual and physical well-being – make up an individual’s wholeness. I also believe in traditional healing and traditional medicines.”
