CMHA-NL acknowledges the BC Residential School tragedy and we offer our support to members families and communities affected. The recent discovery of 215 Indigenous children buried at a former residential school in Kamloops, BC is a national tragedy. It is not just in the past, as trauma, grief and suffering have an inter-generational impact. We stand with and support our Indigenous communities.
Tomorrow, June 1st, Reconciliation Canada will be holding free events for you to attend to honour those who died and discuss what we may do next. If you are interested and able to join as we come together across the nation, please access with the following Zoom link:
If you are looking for support, the National Indian Residential School Crisis Line is there to listen at 1-866-925-4419.
