Youth Focused Mental Health & Wellness Resources

Our partners at We R Native offer guides, resources, and ways to connect that are youth-focused and supportive to the health and wellness of Native youth (although the info can be helpful for people 18+ too). You’ll find ways to build resilience, work with mental health challenges, and much more. https://www.wernative.org/my-mind

Digital Storytelling

Over the years we’ve helped create many digital stories or short videos where people tell their stories directly. You’ll find videos about Indigenous health, community work, mental health, and more in our Indigenous digital storytelling library.

Crisis

Our partners at We R Native have joined forces with the Crisis Text Line. We know we all struggle and sometimes need support from others. If you need someone to talk to, text NATIVE to 741741 for free, 24/7 crisis counseling.
