Online mental health guide created with Indigenous youth in mind

[KSTP-TV News, March 19, 2023] Allina Health has teamed up with a local organization, Indigenous Peoples Task Force, to create an online guide for Indigenous and Native youth. Jennifer Cortes was one of many students trying to navigate a new normal after the pandemic hit.

“It was just a lot and I just fell into a really deep depression from it,” Cortes said. She said having resources that aligned with her culture turned her life around.

It’s one of the reasons why Allina Health launched a Change to Chill web page to make sure Indigenous and Native youth have resources they identify with. Cortes took part in creating one of the videos now featured on the web site.
