The Assembly of First Nations (AFN) will once again participate in the FNHMA Annual National Conference.  The AFN will  help us kick-off the conference by delivering the Opening Plenary and will close the circle with our Closing Plenary.  Come hear from Ontario Regional Chief Isadore Day, Health Portfolio, Assembly of First Nations at our Opening Plenary and from Tobi Mitchell, Health Policy Analyst, Safe, Secure and Sustainable Communities, Assembly of First Nations who will provide an update on the AFN/FNIHB Joint Review of the Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) Program at our Closing Plenary.

Our Thursday morning plenary Key Factors to Implement the First Nations Mental Wellness Continuum Framework in Your Community presented by Carol Hopkins the Executive of the Thunderbird Partnership Foundation, is one you don’t want to miss!  This keynote address will provide an overview of key factors to guide implementation of the First Nations Mental Wellness Continuum Framework to support community health planning and a First Nations service delivery model.  The First Nations Mental Wellness Continuum Framework relies on Indigenous culture as the foundation and describes Hope, Belonging, Meaning and Purpose as critical indicators of wellness.   These indicators have been identified from sacred Indigenous Knowledge and community based knowledge and are valuable for monitoring wellness for First Nations families and communities while demonstrating the strengths of community programs and services.
