Funding through the First Nations Inuit Health Board
Indigenous clients may have access to coverage for Mental Health Counselling Services through the Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB). The First Nations Inuit Health Board provides counselling services to First Nations People who qualify for the program. These services have been developed by the NIHB Program.
The NIHB Program’s Mental Health Care benefits provide eligible people with coverage for mental health counselling to address short-term crisis situations.
Melissa is approved and registered with the First Nation Health Authority and is therefore able to provide these services.
You can find more details on both programs on the First Nations and Inuit Health Guide to Mental Health Counselling Services website.
