Health support services

Survivors, family members and those affected by the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls can access mental health counselling and community-based cultural support services.

To find out more or access supports near you, please call the number in your province or territory:

Cultural supports

Cultural supports are provided by local Indigenous organizations who coordinate the services of Elders, traditional healers, and Indigenous community-based workers. Cultural supports will listen, talk, provide support and specific services chosen by the individual such as traditional healing, ceremonies, teachings and dialogue.

Mental health counselling

Professional mental health counselling is provided by psychologists and social workers that enroll with Indigenous Services Canada. They will listen, talk and assist individuals; provide support and find ways of healing.


Assistance with transportation may be offered when professional counselling and cultural support services are not locally available.
