In Response to the COVID-19
Impact on indigenous communities
Applied Indigenous Mental Soundness
AIMS - Applied Indigenous Mental Soundness
is a project designed in response to the new environment that the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced to the Indigenous communities of Canada both urban and rural.
Many Indigenous communities are adversely affected and are extremely vulnerable to the added fear and anxiety that the pandemic has brought to the already stress-challenged communities.
The urgent outcry from leaders at all levels for mental health support at this time of pressing uncertainty is clear and emphatic.
This national call for mental health support has motivated our team to design an innovative program specifically to address the needs of Indigenous communities.
The objective of AIMS is to create and encourage Mental Soundness through the use of assessment protocols, implementing action plan strategies, solution-based counselling, virtual counselling and virtual talking circles.
What Do We Offer?
A.I.M.S is designed to educate and to encourage the building of skills as the group or individual navigates through the lessons and strategies. A greater understanding of how stress and anxiety impacts our mental soundness and effective practical ways of better managing our emotions are the objective.
We will be facilitating this project through ZOOM ... it will be a group interactive session so that we can talk and help one another as we work through the class material.
Virtual Counselling and Webinars
With technology we offer counselling and motivation webinars through the ZOOM format where connectivity is available. This is a very effective tool of bringing mental support to individuals or groups in remote areas or communities that are closed due to COVID-19.
Virtual Talking Circles
For adults ( 25 and over), young adults (18 - 24)
Indigenous woman's groups
CARS Program is implemented as a tool in our Virtual Counselling or for the Virtual Talking Circles.
