Maanuuhiikuu (Mental Health)

ᒥᓅᐦᐄᑰ Maanuuhiikuu

Maanuuhiikuu is the Regional Department of the Cree Health Board that is responsible for planning and organizing access to mental health services for Cree beneficiaries under the JBNQA, in the communities of Eeyou Istchee and off-Territory as needed. We do not provide most of the services ourselves; our Department helps the local Community Miyupimaatisiiuun Centres (CMCs) and regional partners like the Douglas Hospital offer accessible and culturally safe mental health services including psychology, psychiatry, help with addictions, and support for Indian Residential School survivors and their families.

To get immediate help, contact the CMC in your community. Go to the walk-in clinic or call the clinic using the number at the bottom of this page to make an appointment to see an nurse. You don’t have to tell the receptionist that your visit is about a mental health issue. Find out more: Who Do I Call? A Guide to Mental Health Services.
