Wachiya

My name is Marilyn McLeod. At the present time I am the Interim Health Director.

The MoCreebec Health Department serves the community and provides quality programs and services, which meet the holistic needs of individuals, families and community. We offer programs and services that reflect the current and future health priorities of the community.

The MoCreebec Health Department is committed to improving the lives of its members through offering a wide range of services that allow for healing and empowerment.

We provide services through the Healthy Babies/Healthy Children Program. This program works with families that have children ages 0-6.

Mocreebec Health holds an agreement between Payukotayno: James & Hudson Bay Child & Family Services. We have a Family Service Worker on-site that provides one-to-one counselling sessions with individuals and/or families.

Our Health Program under Health Canada (Building Healthy Communities-Mental Health Crisis Management) administers services in the following areas:

  • Provide awareness & understanding of our Values & Cultural Teachings;
  • Assist in addressing the gaps in mental health services for our Community of the MoCreebec Council of the Cree Nation;
    the healing empowerment of community members through the provision of mental health & social services which include intervention, prevention & post intervention;

  • Addresses health & social issues that affect the Membership/Community and provide opportunities that improve health services;
  • Ensure integrated & coordinated care for sectors that include the children & families by coordinating human service sectors.(i.e., health, social services , education, justice and employment etc.,).

We assist in coordinating with the Community/Region various Conferences/Summits and Seminars relating to Regional Health within our catchment area on an annual basis.

We represent MoCreebec Chief & Council on various regional Boards (i.e. WAHA, SHL, JHBCFS.

We network with the community agencies to build a stronger and healthier community.

We are also available on an on-call basis should a crisis occur in the Community.
