Building Relationships

The Ottawa Aboriginal has developed a relationship model when working with non-Aboriginal partners in the area of mental health that we have used in other areas of our work. It was first presented as part of an Aboriginal Mental Health conference at City Hall organized by Minwaashin Lodge. This model recognizes that for reconciliation relationships to be established there is a foundation that is built not only on western knowledge but also indigenous knowledge. There are specific outcomes for each direction:
