The Government of Canada has recently announced mental
health funding for former Indian Day School students and their families. The FNHA
has received federal funding to administer the Indian Day Schools Health
Support Services (IDS HSS), a new fully-funded mental health program that is
available as of Feb. 8, 2021.
The IDS HSS program supports former Indian Day School
students, as well as anyone who has experienced the effects of trauma
associated with a family member’s time at an Indian Day School. Clients can be
