Grief and the conflicting emotions caused by loss are cumulative and most often have a growing negative effect on our ability to participate in life. The primary goal of Edu-Therapy™ is to give participants a stable cognitive process to continue to help themselves and their Community with on-going support for 5 years from Edu-Therapy Support. As Physical Care Costs escalate often, Mental Health needs are neglected. Once Certified as an Edu-Therapy Specialist in as little as 6 hours per week, one specialist can bring Mental Resolution of the pain and sadness caused by loss to over 200 people per year. Trained teams can escalate these numbers adding to the resiliency of the Community as people begin to heal at less than the cost of a trip to the ER where little to no emotional care is given.

MFNERC

Sharing Our Success, Living a Good Life

May 10-12, 2017 Victoria Inn Hotel and Convention Centre Winnipeg, Manitoba

Sharing our success stories will help each of our schools to achieve even more success. We will explore various and diverse educational models for First Nations.
