Northern Ontario Cree Community

David Danto has created a field study in psychology at the University of Guelph-Humber designed to provide senior undergraduate students with the opportunity to learn about First Nations’ mental health related issues. Students are able to gain experience in the field of applied psychology by contributing to the work of Mental Health Professionals employed in rural locations within Ontario. Through the field study, David Danto hopes that students will develop a greater understanding of the historical development of the Aboriginal cultures that reside in northern Ontario. Further, students will be able to articulate the mental health related challenges faced by First Nations’ people residing in northern Ontario, along with being able to distinguish and describe the relationship between traditional and conventional
approaches to mental health challenges.
