Action on mental wellness and substance use issues continues to be a priority for First Nations across the country. The AFN National Mental Wellness Forum will feature sessions on the past and present, and identify ways to strengthen mental wellness for First Nations in the future. The Forum will include a focus on hearing from those with lived experiences to provide insight for leaders, mental wellness knowledge holders and workers in the development of future steps.

Systems that impact First Nations wellness must change to better address the multiple barriers and challenges existing at all levels of governments.  A First Nations-led approach will support First Nations initiatives with culturally relevant policy, funding mechanisms, strategies, programs and services.
