LEARNING MATTERS –
April 14, 2022 – Dr. Tina Woods leads the Council’s Community and Behavioral Health Services team. She says the goal is to remove barriers for people seeking information or care.
“Half the battle with behavioral health is being able to choose the right words to describe how you feel, to describe what you need,” she said. “Culture Heals Addiction is a platform that will allow people, with resources all in one place, to learn about something that they might be struggling with.”
She says the Culture Heals tool addresses issues that underlie addiction, like generational or childhood trauma.
William Andrews joined Dr. Woods’ team last year and will lead men’s healing groups. He says he got involved after therapy with the tribe helped him through the pandemic. He says that was the only therapy he could access because other local resources were unavailable.
