Developing an Innu FASD Prevention Strategy

December 1, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

In this presentation, Annie and Melody will share the background context, the scope of work, and the outcomes from a community-wide FASD prevention project in Labrador. Annie will share the history and impetus behind developing a strengths- and asset-based approach to articulating an FASD prevention strategy in Sheshatshiu Innu First Nations and Mushuau Innu First Nations. Melody will describe how a funded project (Health Services Integration Fund) was conducted to map existing prevention work already happening within both communities. Key findings and recommendations will be shared. Together, Annie and Melody will explain how the project has informed several project deliverables and community plans.
