The Australian Government has funded an Aboriginal-led prevention project aiming to support Aboriginal women who are pregnant and reduce FASD in the community and to address service gaps for Aboriginal families.
Today is the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation (also known as Orange Shirt Day). In honor of Orange Shirt Day, we wanted to highlight a few Indigenous-led and Indigenous-centered programs across Canada that are working to address FASD and improve the health and wellbeing of their communities by building strengths and abilities.
Today you’ll hear from members of our Family Advisory Committee who care for someone with FASD. In their own words, they share why recognizing and celebrating strengths is so important and talk about some of their recent successes.
