INDIGENOUS MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES
Eyaa-Keen Healing Centre Inc.’s success is largely based on the fact that our services and programs help individuals identify and develop the skills and abilities they already possess.
Our therapeutic model is an innovative integration of Indigenous principles. Our services parallel the western system, but are guided by the thousands of years old patterns of healing that are part of the Indigenous system – rooted in the spiritual laws of creation and honouring the interconnectedness of life.
Our work and services help individuals restore balance within themselves, their families and their communities. Through our sessions, participants gradually regain their own thinking and identify and build their own steps to healing, changing and living productively. The structure of our programming allows individuals to move through each of these steps at their own pace.
Individuals may choose to work with a Behavioural Health Specialist, a Traditional Healer or an Elder, or with a combination of all three at different points throughout the treatment. Throughout the healing process, these workers will help individuals gain the tools they need to do the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical work needed to heal the wounds caused by traumas. The spiritual aspect of the healing process is strengthened through the Indigenous Traditional based approach to therapy, including various ceremonies and teachings.
