The NAN Hope Mental Health and Addictions Support Access (“NAN Hope”) program has become a trusted and valued resource for NAN citizens across the 49 communities within the Nishnawbe Aski region since its inception in August of 2020. Since its start, Dalton Associates and Keewaytinook Okimakanak eHealth (“KO eHealth”) have partnered to provide mental health services through this exceptional program. KO eHealth received the funding for NAN Hope and Dalton Associates was contracted to support direct clinical/crisis support service delivery and service management.
Keewaytinook Okimakanak (“KO”), in keeping with their goals of health transformation, has advised Dalton Associates that they will be taking over sole responsibility for the NAN Hope program effective April 1, 2024. Dalton Associates will continue to provide services up to March 31, 2024. We expect that KO will provide further updates regarding any adjustments to the program stemming from this transition.
Dalton Associates’ is committed to ensuring a smooth transition and, as such, our Wellness Navigators, Counsellors, and Traditional Counsellors will be contacting all current and past service users to advise them of the change and walk with them through to March 31, 2024.
It has been an honour and a privilege for Dalton Associates to be part of such an important program for the last 3.5 years, and we wish KO every success in the future of the NAN Hope program.
CEO, Dalton Associates
