Resilient Roots “A Métis Mental Health & Wellness” Magazine
Thank you for reading Resilient Roots: Métis Mental Health and Wellness Magazine.
This magazine has been led by the members of the Métis Youth Mental Health
and Wellness Initiative, and is the result of many months of discussions, brainstorming sessions, and hard work. Thank you to all Initiative members for your tireless efforts in working to make positive change in the world of mental health.
Everything you will read in this magazine comes from Community Members who have chosen to share their voice with us. We are so deeply grateful to all contributors for sharing their work with this publication. Your incredible contributions have allowed us to shine a light on Métis voices in our Communities.
In all the uncertainty that we are experiencing right now with COVID-19, we are proud to be sharing this work of hope with you. During this time, we will lean on the resilience that we as Métis are rooted in. Within these pages, you will see stories that are a reflection of the shining strength of our Métis Community Members.
May you find hope and inspiration within this publication.
Marsee, and be well,
Minister Susie Hooper
Minister of Health, Métis Nation British Columbia
