Indigenous Mental Health (Ongoing List of)
As settlers, we are continually learning the history and witnessing the current experiences of Indigenous people. We want to extend our support and care by sharing resources. Below you will see a list of artists on Instagram, mental health and community resources and for non-Indigenous folks who are interested to learn more, a free course at the bottom of the page.
This resource list is ongoing. We also didn’t want to hold on to info when we can share it. If you know of any other resources to share, please contact us.
