Getting Help



Sometimes our paths to wellness are bumpy. When the road gets tough, keep in mind that our ancestors were strong, courageous, and thoughtful people. Every decision they made was based on how it would impact our community and the future generations to come. Today, their blood runs through our veins, and we can feel their presence through our arts, stories, songs, and ceremonies. As with many things in life, health is a journey. There is always room to grow, learn from our decisions, and practice taking care of ourselves and others.
