Nodin Mental Health Services

Nodin Mental Health Services provides counselling, support and intervention services to First Nation children, youth, adults, and families from communities served by the Sioux Lookout First Nations Health Authority, who are experiencing social, emotional, or behavioral problems. Nodin is a resource available to 33 First Nation communities in the Sioux Lookout region, the majority remote fly-in access only.


Nodin has been overseeing the provision of mental health services since 1994 to First Nations clients. Mental health services for children and youth, formally under the family counselling unit of Tikinagan Child and Family Services, were formally transferred to Sioux Lookout First Nations Health Authority in April of 2002.

Formed in response to the Coroner’s Inquest into the tragic suicide of a young girl in our area, the Nodin Joint Management Committee assisted with the strategic planning for comprehensive mental health services, both non-residential and future residential care, and mental health services.
