Arctic Indigenous Wellness Foundation Traditional Counselling

The Artic Indigenous Wellness Foundation has set up phone sessions with their traditional counsellors and elders for those that would like support. They are operating during their regular business hours from 9am-12pm and 1pm-5pm, and are able to call you back during your session time so you don't have to pay long distance if you are calling from one of the communities in the NWT outside of Yellowknife. They ask that you only call during those time frames so that they can allow their support staff to also take rest. Contact information as follows:

  • William Greenland- 867-446-1346
  • Annie Mitsima- 867-688-3027
  • Ruth Mercredi- 867-444-1949
