Biigajiiskaan: Indigenous Pathways to Mental Wellness - How To Access

Program Eligibility

The program is available to Indigenous adult inpatients, outpatients and community outreach clients of Parkwood Institute’s Mental Health Care Program (18 years or older). Participants at Atlohsa also have access to these services and Biigajiiskaan provides mobile outreach to a growing number of referrals through other local Indigenous agencies and organizations in the London-Middlesex region.

To access Biigajiiskaan services, Indigenous individuals in need of mental health and addictions services will require a referral from a mental health care provider at St. Joseph’s Health Care London or through Atlohsa Family Healing Services.
