CASA First Nation Program
CASA's First Nation Program is a partnership with several Edmonton Area First Nation Communities. With our partners, we work to remove community-identified barriers to mental health supports and services for children and families, while providing community-based access to such services.
The First Nations Team
The First Nations team includes a mental health therapist, occupational therapist; and a child & youth mentor. This multidisciplinary team engages with the communities and other service providers to deliver integrated, holistic Indigenous mental health practice.
The team responds to the needs identified by the families referred to us, and by our First Nation community partners.
Who can access service?
Children, youth and families living in or actively connected to the Alexander, Alexis, Paul and Enoch First Nations are eligible for services.
What does it cost?
The services provided by CASA Indigenous Services are publicly funded. There is no additional fee for services.
How do I refer?
We receive referrals from and work directly with community-based supports and services including health and wellness centres, schools and programs for infant and preschool children. It is possible for community members to request services themselves.
