ICFSD welcome RCYBC’s recent report A Parent’s Responsibility. Indigenous Child & Youth Mental Wellness Framework

The Indigenous Child & Family Service Directors Society, representing the 24 Indigenous child and family service providers in British Columbia, welcome the RCYBC’s recent report on government’s responsibility to support mental wellness among children in care: A Parent’s Responsibility.

In our work, ICFS Directors are regularly faced with the tragic outcomes of the mental health crisis among our children, youth, families and communities. We fully support the RCYBC’s recommendations and find them to be well-aligned with our Indigenous Child & Youth Mental Wellness Framework: Culture is Healing. The framework and additional information can be found on the Resources page of the Our Children Our Way webpage.
