I can't believe there isn't like 10 Children's Mental Health & wellness workers stationed long term there all ready.The need for a dedicated Children's mental Health and wellness worker is much needed service in Attawapiskat— Chief Shisheesh (@BruceShisheesh) May 4, 2016

So sad, all these letters of love and the kids are still hurting so much.

Resource Parent Curriculum (RPC) Online
This eight-module curriculum package is designed to guide facilitators on how to run RPC workshops where participants (resource parents/foster parents) learn what trauma is, how trauma may impact children, and how their behaviors are often symptoms of those experiences. The curriculum also provides information on how to create a safe place, how to become an advocate for trauma-specific services and how to recognize and help prevent compassion fatigue. All are included in the downloadable modules, which are available for free! Browse and download the curriculum here. http://learn.nctsn.org/enrol/index.php?id=67
