Mental Wellness Team

Resources Creating awareness around mental health issues and suicide
Winnipeg Crisis Response Centre

The centre offers walk-in assessment and treatment for those in mental crisis, along with referrals to other mental health services.

In the fall of 2017, Southeast Resource Development Council (SERDC) Corp. Health Services received funding to host a Mental Wellness Team as part of Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak’s (MKO) Mental Wellness Coordination Initiative. SERDC’s team consists of 3 professionals of diverse expertise to provide mental wellness care to our member communities.

Services provided by the team include:

  1. Mental wellness education, promotion, prevention, while integrating Indigenous language and culture;
  2. Outreach and case management services (early identification and intervention, assessments, coordination of care/care planning, referral services, life skills coaching, and support/aftercare); and
  3. Advocacy and outreach in mental health policy (such as system integration, increased funding for services, new resources and tools, etc.).
