What This Grantee Is Doing for Community Counselling
Snuneymuxw Hulit Lelum's counselling services support people looking for help with parenting, relationships, substance use challenges and other needs. CAI funding supports the role of a Mental Health and Wellness worker, who delivers 1:1 counselling and facilitates culturally appropriate groups and workshops for clients. Counselling is delivered in both individual and group settings, in-person and virtually via technology provided on a loaner basis to clients who need it. The program incorporates Indigenous cultural teachings within a collaborative health care setting that recognizes the cultural, physical, mental and spiritual dimensions of wellness.
