For survivors of residential schools and their families, the Indian Residential Schools Resolution Health Support Program provides mental health and emotional support services, including:
- Access to Resolution Health Support Workers (RHSW) and Cultural Support Providers (CSP)
- CSPs offer traditional and spiritual teachings provided by people who are knowledgeable about Cree culture, such as Elders.
The program also assists survivors:
- Before, during and after their participation in Settlement Agreement processes
- With Common Experience Payments and the Independent Assessment Process
- For Truth and Reconciliation Commission events and Commemoration activities.
For more information, contact Tina Iserhoff, Administrative Technician, 819-855-9013 and ask to be connected with Daisy Bearskin Herodier.
RHSWs and CSWs are available to support people who wish to give testimony to CERP, the Public Inquiry Commission on relations between Indigenous Peoples and certain public services in Québec.
