NVHA has established a comprehensive Mental Wellness Service Plan consisting of an integrated approach to Mental Wellness, Traditional Wellness, Addictions, Life Skills and Mental Illness across the Nass Valley. The services are integrated into a central “hub” located in the beautiful community of Gitwinksihlkw. Mental Wellness supports include an on-site Clinical Nurse Lead, Therapist and 5 Community Wellness Worker’s.

Nisga’a Lisims Government, under 2013 Treaty, has defined rights of law-making authority over lands, interests and citizenship. As Nisga’a Valley Health is funded directly through the Nisga’a Nation, we are perfectly poised to develop comprehensive Wellness model based on the unique needs of our Nation. In the development process, we are able to utilize the principles of Primary Mental Health Care while honoring the timeless and wholistic Nisga’a Wellness model.
