Healing Through Stories

These video clips show how Aboriginal families have been negatively impacted by their health care experiences, and how the residential school system’s legacy of abuse has contributed. The ACHH Initiative work is dependent on the Aboriginal communities who have provided their insights, wise counsel and a shared commitment to improving the lives of children and reducing their hurt.

These videos present stories and findings from our first study.
