Welcome to Noojmowin Teg Health Centre
The Noojmowin Teg Health Centre is committed to support and promote the overall wholistic health and well-being of Anishanabek and Aboriginal individuals, families and communities within the District of Manitoulin Island. To do this, we will operate community-based programs and services, establish partnerships, and promote healthier communities through both traditional and western healing methods.
Traditional culture is at the heart, a vital core component, of
all programs and services. Degohnegaadeh is a word which means to blend –
this suggests combining western and traditional healing approaches in a
complementary fashion without losing the original integrity of each.
Programs and services are aligned with the stages of life within
the medicine wheel. This is congruent with a life course approach and
appropriately aligned with local cultural understandings.
are delivered in collaboration and coordination with partner First Nations and
other health service providers. Fundamental to the forum discussions was
the concept that partnership and the coordination of services with partners are
fundamental to effectively meeting client needs.
