Harnessing our Strengths: Exploring the Mental Health of Native American Communities (Mental Health America)

Many Native/Indigenous tribes embrace a worldview that encompasses the idea of connectedness (with the past and with others), strong family bonds, adaptability, oneness with nature, the wisdom of elders, meaningful traditions, and a strong spirit, all of which may serve as protective factors when it comes to mental health. In honor of Native American Heritage Month, join MHA and guests for this panel-style webinar to explore the many strengths of Native/Indigenous tribes that improve the mental health of their communities.

In this free, 60-minute webinar we will:

  • Learn more about Native/Indigenous peoples’ beliefs, traditions, and community practices that positively impact mental health
  • Explore ways to continue the improvement of Native/Indigenous mental health
  • Discuss unique strengths in Native/Indigenous communities that other cultures and communities can learn from
  • Hear from Native/Indigenous people on their lived experiences and mental health journeys
