Mental Health
In 1995, the federal government,
through Medical Services
Branch of Health Canada
initiated the Building
Healthy Communities (B.H.C.)
program. The initiative began
as a result of gaps in services
being identified and needs
going unmet, which led to
crisis situations in many First
Nations communities. The
overall purpose of B.H.C. is
to increase delivery of mental
health services at the community level.

Under this initiative, services to be considered for development are Mental Health/Crisis Situations. Solvent Abuse and/or Home Care Nursing.

Six Nations Mental Health Services developed as a result of direct consultation with existing agencies and community consultation.

Six Nations Mental Health Services opened its doors in July of 1997.
