The partners involved in this project included Fraser Health Authority's Aboriginal Services, Mission Mental Health, Mission Indian Friendship Centre Society, Stó:lo Nation Health Support Services, and Bear Image Productions. Fraser Health was the primary funder with the BC Partners for Mental Health and Addictions Information providing funding for steering and promotional support. Staff from the Canadian Mental Health Association's BC Division provided input on the BC Partners' behalf.(website)
