Hotıì ts’eeda is pleased to provide funding and in-kind support to the Supporting Well-being Training Program. This program is meant to enhance the capacity of on-the-land program leaders in responding to and managing mental health challenges. This training applies to both being on the land and in communities. The proposed training is modular; adaptive; made-in-the-North; culturally informed; and, trauma-informed. It will support and promote community wellness while also increasing the effectiveness of land-based programming.

This two-year project is being administered by the NWT Recreation and Parks Association, but guided by a steering committee of on-the-land leaders from Dehcho First Nations, Inuvialuit Regional Corporation, Dene Nahjo, Délı̨nę Got’ı̨nę̨ Government / Hotıì ts’eeda, and Fireweed Counselling.
