Aboriginal mental health case manager and Aboriginal mental health liaison services

Our Aboriginal mental health case manager and Aboriginal mental health liaison can provide assessment, referral, counselling support services, and liaise with other mental health workers in hospital and community.

From connecting patients to community services, assisting and educating health professionals in caring for Aboriginal clients, to helping patients understand and navigate the health care system, liaisons provide invaluable support and services to Fraser Health’s Aboriginal patient population.

Aboriginal health liaisons in hospitals

The Aboriginal health liaison team works together with health care providers to provide better care in the most appropriate manner to Aboriginal people.

Aboriginal health liaisons can connect with Aboriginal patients and family members, health care professionals, and other service providers to ensure Aboriginal patients receive culturally sensitive, appropriate, and timely care, whether in hospital or community. 

Aboriginal health liaisons can provide support, advocacy, and health education to Aboriginal clients and their families in hospital and community settings.

If you are Aboriginal and receiving care in a Fraser Health hospital, you can contact an Aboriginal health liaison to help you access health care services to meet your cultural needs.

You can contact an Aboriginal health liaison through the following hospital locations:
