About This Section
Racism, intergenerational trauma, and subsequent lateral violence, have dramatic impacts on Indigenous mental health. At Vancouver Aboriginal Health Society (VAHS) we are committed to ensuring Indigenous people receive culturally responsive, compassionate mental and emotional health care. It is in this spirit that we provide the resources listed below.
There are several organizations based in BC that offer Indigenous, culturally focused support. Talking to some who gets it—who shares aspects and understanding of your lived experience—can make an incredible difference to your health. Here are six mental health resources that we recommend.
