Community Led Solutions

Project Description

Building on the results from the UnPPAC and the ACHH Maritimes project including the health data analysis, this project titled “First Steps in Creating Community-Led Solutions to Improve Indigenous Children and Youth’s Wellness in Ear, Oral and Mental Health” is being carried out to address the high rates of ear, oral and mental health conditions in First Nation children and youth.

Currently, we are talking to community health professionals, youth and parents to find out about the experiences of accessing treatments for youth/children’s ear, oral and/or mental health conditions. This information will help us to understand service availability in community, what is working well and where the supports are needed so we can develop community-led solutions for these specific health concerns.


Stay tuned for results and next steps!
