Indigenous Women’s Bridging Program

Indigenous Women’s Bridging Program  

This project aims to break the cycle of trauma by supporting Indigenous women to learn, recognize healthy and unhealthy relationships, develop self-knowledge and skills related to their personal growth, and support the development of skills and networks to foster their personal and financial security. It is tailored to recognize and respond to the unique needs, strengths and learning styles of Indigenous peoples, including recognizing the complexities of intergenerational trauma and colonialism and its effects on family and community life. The program delivers group and individual supports that strengthen protective factors for good mental health and enable access to skills, resources, and supportive environments that enhance equity and keep Indigenous women and their families mentally healthy for the long term.
