Mental Health Services
Mental Health Services: Six Nations members can access the names of F.N.I.B approved counsellors for anywhere in Canada.
First Nations & Inuit Health Branch Mental Health Inquiry Line 1-800-881-3921
Option 1 = Mental health counselling (the only required information is the area the person is currently located, no personal information is required). Once a nearest location can be identified a list of approved providers will be given to the caller or can be faxed to the caller.
Option 2 = All other health inquiries
It's a very simple process and the choice of providers is up to the student/caller.
The only time personal information is required, is when a provider has been selected.
Personal information includes name, date of birth and Indian Affairs Status Card.
Six Nations member can also access services by contacting Six Nations Mental Health Services directly 519-445-2143.
There is a 24 hour crisis response service 1-866-445-2204 but this is staffed by a consortium of Six Nations service agencies and depending on what agency leads the shift the caller may not get the most current Mental Health resource information (contacts).

Financial Aid for Native Americans
Going to school in the United States is expensive, but there is financial assistance specifically for Native Americans. The following is some information that is on the website www.fastweb.com. This site also has tips for researching, applying and obtaining scholarships.
Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA):
Government sponsored funds that directly target the Native American community. The BIA is a subsection of the U.S. Department of the Interior. It offers a wide array of services that benefit the Native American population, including funds for education. For more information on eligibility, applying, and obtaining a BIA grant, check out the bureaus website at www.doi.gov/bia or call (202) 208-3711.
Tuition Reduction and Waiver Programs:
Some colleges offer tuition reductions or complete tuition waivers for qualified Native Americans. You usually have to meet certain academic requirements and be a registered member of a federally recognized tribe or a certain percentage of provable blood. Check with your prospective schools to see if they offer this benefit.
Tribal Colleges and the American Indian College Fund:
In 1986, the 32 tribal colleges of the United States joined together to create the American Indian College Fund. The funds purpose is to raise scholarship and operation funds for the colleges and their students. To learn more about the scholarship opportunities available through the American Indian College Fund, visit their home page at www.collegefund.org.
There are several scholarships sponsored by native american associations and other organizations. For example, the American Indian Science and Engineering Society, www.aises.org, sponsors awards for students in the physical and biological sciences.
To find other scholarships, complete a FastWeb scholarship search at www.fastweb.com. Learn about other funding opportunities for native americans at www.finaid.com/otheraid/natamind.phtml. More financial aid/scholarship information can be found on http://juniormc.tripod.com/Grants2.htm
