MNBC: Mental Health Week 2022

Press Release

May 2nd through May 8th marks Mental Health Week 2022 ( Today, we #getreal by shining a light on the resilience of our Métis communities. Aligning with Mental Health Week 2022, we are excited to launch the third issue of Resilient Roots: Métis Mental Health and Wellness Magazine. In this publication, we proudly highlight the stories of Métis individuals across the province who have chosen to share their voices around Métis mental health and wellness.

As shared by MNBC’s Minister of Mental Health and Addictions, Dr. Kate Elliott:

“Métis ways of knowing show that community-based approaches contribute to resilience and mental wellness. Resilient Roots is guided by the principle of Kaa-wiichihitoyaahk – which means ‘we take care of each other’. By utilizing the guiding belief of Kaa-wiichihitoyaahk, this magazine hopes to be a testament to that shining strength and resilience that lives in our Métis communities.

Every part of this magazine comes from the strong, inspired voices of Métis community members across BC. We are so deeply grateful to all contributors for sharing their incredible work with this publication.”
