2-Spirited People of the 1st Nations – Webinar – 2023-08-23

This webinar will be centred around Indigenous approaches to collective and community care, harm reduction, and wholistic wellness and will discuss the Toronto Community Crisis Service (TCCS) Indigenous led mental health crisis response pilot.

Collective care has existed within Indigenous nations since time immemorial, understanding Indigenous approaches to care provides frontline workers and service providers with the tools to better walk alongside the communities they serve.

Saige McMahon (she/her) is an Anishnaabekwe settler mix from Treaty 3 Territories, Rainy River First Nations. She identifies as being a part of the queer community. She is the Director of the Indigenous led Crisis Response Pilot, and has been working in various capacities with 2-Spirited People of the 1st Nations for roughly 5 years.
