Our People

Our Indigenous Care Providers

The Noojimo circle works together to create a safe space for Indigenous people to receive better wholistic mental wellness support. Our circle is made up of Indigenous Registered Social Workers who have decades of experience using a variety of wholistic approaches to care. Our circle shares a common vision to help Indigenous people achieve their own version of minobiimadziwin (the good life) while working together to keep our own circle sacred and healthy.
