Since 1994, the Indian Residential School Survivors Society has been offering front-line emotional, cultural, and crisis support through our Resolution Health Support Workers (RHSW). The RHSW team supports emotional, mental, and spiritual development, along with healing and recovery for survivors, families and communities, and their work is guided by culturally-based values and principles.
Residential school survivors and intergenerational survivors can also access culturally safe, non-judgmental and confidential counselling services from the RHSW team. Counselling services are short-term until long-term help or a resolution can be found.
The following kinds of emotional supports are available: Individual, Couples, Family, Group, Sharing Circles, Crisis Counselling, and Community Crisis Support.
