*Note:   This program is run on a community capacity building methodology.  YSAC does not have the funding to provide Facilitators with facilitation fees or travel costs.   It is our hope that this important training be free for First Nation communities therefore provides this training for free.  It is anticipated that organizations that chose to have a staff facilitator for the program will receive in kind and enduring benefits from having trained facilitators including:

  • Increased community connection/reputation
  • Reduced costs for internal staff training needs
  • Other referrals/networking/partnerships from your presentation
  • Increased deliverables related to your own mandates in mental health service delivery

It is YSAC’s wish that participating organizations support the development in building capacity of their Facilitators by covering the costs of their wages and travel during their training and in future, by sharing this important training within their partner communities and agencies.
