Indigenous Well-Being & Mental Health

Focus Area for the Mountain Plains MHTTC

The Indigenous Well-Being & Mental Health vision for the Mountain Plains MHTTC is to support Indigenous people and communities living throughout Region 8. We recognize that Indigenous peoples and communities encounter unique challenges when pursuing behavioral health care due to systemic oppression, affordability, accessibility, and acceptability.

To achieve the vision and diminish these barriers to care, the Mountain Plains MHTTC hosts, presents, and distributes community relevant and culturally-adapted evidenced-based information to both Indigenous and non-indigenous educators, behavioral health providers, and primary care providers.


HealtheKnowledge is a free, online learning and low-cost continuing education platform for mental and behavioral health professionals. You can enroll in the following course through the Mountain Plains MHTTC:
