First Nations Health Authority provides clients with access to counselling services from mental health providers. I am a registered service provider with FNHA.
FNHA Health Benefits support for mental health counselling through three programs:
- Mental Wellness and Counselling (MW&C)
- The Indian Residential School Resolution Health Support Program (IRS RHSP)
- The Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Health Support Services (MMIWG HSS)
Each program has its own eligibility criteria. All services require prior approval from Health Benefits. Services not listed as a benefit may be covered on an exceptional basis. Clients should call Health Benefits at 1- 855-550-5454 to learn more about exceptional coverage. You can also read about these programs here: https://www.fnha.ca/benefits/mental-health
