Natawiwewak

Redefining Indigenous Health Care

Natawiwewak

A First Nations solution for First Nations people

Meaning “Where the Healers are”, Natawiwewak was formed via First Nations partnership with Quest Health to find creative solutions to the many challenges in providing adequate health care in the remote communities of Northern Manitoba. Critically underserviced, Indigenous Northern Manitoba communities are facing epidemic physical and mental health crises. Our team of Physicians and Mental Wellness Clinicians provide essential health care, both in the community and in Winnipeg through our clinic and Health Centre, making a positive impact on the overall quality of life of those we serve.

COVID-19 UPDATE

Programming Changes

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic we will be suspending all of our Natawiwewak Mindfulness Psychoeducational Programs until May 11th, 2020 pending further notice. However, we will still be accepting referrals for this one-week program. Mental Wellness Clinicians will no longer be travelling to the partnering communities of Chemawawin, God’s Lake Narrows, Oxford House and God’s River, these communities are restricting entry to only essential workers at this time. Clinicians can be contracted through our office at 204-417-8877

Future Services Coming Soon

Quest Health and Natawiwewak are dedicated to improving health and wellness in our partnering communities. As we continue to develop new solutions to many of the obstacles faced regularly by our community members, we recognize the need for further access to many other essential services unfortunately lacking in the communities we serve. Quest Health and Natawiwewak are continually working to bring these services to the community members, and provide easy access when needed.
