Four Directions Conference Without Borders: 2015
Many representatives of First Nations, Métis, and Tribal Nations and organizations working on wellness throughout communities in Northwest Washington and British Columbia have come together to plan this important conference. As our Four Directions theme suggests, our goal is to honor the past and protect the future through holistic health, wellness, and recovery support. We hope to bring together First Nations and Tribal leaders, behavioral health directors and counselors, education and prevention experts, and families to support each other with knowledge on health issues, problem gambling and other addictions, and financial and safety concerns that affect all of our communities.
The first Four Directions Conference in 2009 was a great success—so much so that interest grew rapidly in offering an expanded conference program. Today, as we celebrate our seventh annual Four Directions Conference, we also celebrate our first Four Directions Without Borders—a partnership between dedicated organizations in the United States and Canada.
Please take at look at the full conference schedule to see all of the exciting opportunities for both training and cultural enrichment. From expanding workplace knowledge and skills to experiencing healing and teaching tools that honor the traditional heritage of many cultures, your journey at Four Directions will illuminate and influence your work and your life.
We hope you will join us for this important event!
