Funded Programs

Building Organizational Capacity: HIR’s mission is to increase mental health accessibility and inclusivity for health justice through demonetizing the relationships between the mental health systems, and those seeking mental health services within Indigenous and historically under-invested and therefore chronically underserved communities. Their short-term goal is to offer immediate relief, resources, skill-based coping strategies, advocacy services, mental health support and triage when needed to other agencies. Multi-year funding would help HIR wellness institute to sustain a high level of community-based mental health outreach and provide therapeutic supplies, gear, and hire a part time mental health social worker.
