Abstract
"Different voices from diverse cultural backgrounds share life stories about the paths travelled while navigating their experience of mental illness. Their messages are meant to serve as a catalyst for ongoing discussion to deepen our understanding of needs and experience of people who experience mental illness and, in particular, Aboriginal people and their families. They offer suggestions for a more holistic system that includes an approach of respect, not blame, and an understanding of their need for cultural reconciliation. A health care provider comments that respect for the patient's personal experience is an essential first step along the path to healing. This film is an initiative of the Cultural Society working group of the First Nation, Me´tis and Inuit Advisory Committee of the Mental Health Commission in collaboration with the Mood Disorders Association of Canada and the Native Mental Health Association."
