Did you know?
- A recent study found that a third of First Nations clients who entered treatment for addiction were diagnosed or suspected of having a mental health disorder.
The Thunderbird Partnership Foundation (TPF) was formed in 2015, combining the strengths and experience of the Native Mental Health Association of Canada and the National Native Addictions Partnership Foundation.
TPF plays a crucial role as the cultural and professional voice advocating for a systems approach – one that empowers hope, belonging, meaning, and purpose for First Nations and Inuit.
The mandate of the TPF is built on the Honouring our Strengths Framework and the First Nations Mental Wellness Continuum Framework.
This interactive On Call session, will be presented by Carol Hopkins, TPF’s Executive Director, and hosted by Rose LeMay, Director of Northern and Indigenous Health, CFHI.
