Entry #19: Saskatoon Health Region – First Nations and Métis Health Services

https://www.saskatoonhealthregion.ca/locations_services/Services/fnmh/service/Pages/Resources.aspx

This website contains information for First Nations and Métis peoples regarding medical services available in the Saskatoon Health Region.  Through online brochures, contact information, and links to other Saskatoon Health Region services, visitors to the site can access mental wellness telephone assistance, information about chronic disease management, and how to find an advocate to support oneself in the health care system.  The face-to-face services provided by the department are also communicated, as well as how to access them.  Because of the impoverished living conditions facing many First Nations and Métis people in Saskatchewan, this website is a much needed resource to help Indigenous peoples in Saskatchewan access necessary medical information, treatment, and support.  Links on the site connect to other departments of the health region and external helplines.
