Thunderbird Partnership Foundation

Image of the Thunderbird Partnership Foundation logoThe Thunderbird Partnership Foundation is a non-profit organization that is committed to working with First Nations to further the capacity of communities to address substance use and addiction. We promote a holistic approach to healing and wellness that values culture, respect, community, and compassion. Our top priority is developing a continuum of care that would be available to all Indigenous people in Canada.

The Honouring Our Strengths Renewal Framework document is the framework for this continuum – it outlines community development programs; services for the prevention, early identification, intervention, and treatment of addiction; and the important roles of mental health and well-being in all aspects of care.

We are also committed to supporting the First Nations Mental Wellness Continuum Framework which is rooted in cultural knowledge and emphasizes First Nations strengths and capacities, building upon the Honouring Our Strengths Renewal Framework. As such, our work is guided by the four components of mental wellness outlined within the First Nations Mental Wellness Continuum Framework: HopeBelongingMeaning, and Purpose.
