HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS VIDEO:

Nicole Ineese-Nash and Maggie Stein hosted an online interactive webinar designed to offer evidence-based and culturally safe approaches for supporting Indigenous youth. This 2-hour webinar was intended for parents, caregivers, mental health providers, youth workers, educators, and community members who are interested in developing strategies to support the young people in their lives. The webinar presented findings from a knowledge synthesis project braiding together key principles of Indigenous mental health models, Child and Youth Care approaches, and Dialectic Behaviour Therapy practices. The purpose of this approach is to best serve the mental and spiritual health needs of Indigenous youth across Canada during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.⁠

The resource was developed through research, community consultations, and implementation and has been packaged as a free toolkit to be used by anyone seeking to support Indigenous youth in their community.⁠⁠
