Healing and Wellness programs are located throughout Ontario at 27 Friendship Centres and 1 Delivery Site. The Healing and Wellness Coordinators provide support to community members through family violence support services, individual healing and wellness needs, and accessing traditional services and supports. These services are available on a one-to-one basis or in a group setting where action plans are developed to help meet short-term and long-term goals of participants. With the goal of reducing family violence and improving Aboriginal health, the Healing and Wellness Coordinators are well equipped to assist individuals to access services, provide crisis intervention, offer traditional supports and provide peer counseling to any community member impacted by violence. Furthermore, Healing and Wellness programs integrate with other Friendship Centre programs to provide community members with a wholistic approach to healing and wellness. For more information, please contact your local Friendship Centre.
