Located in Sioux Lookout with some regional travel to the 33 First Nation Communities that Sioux Lookout First Nation Health Authority serves (primarily fly in community travel).
NODIN Mental Health Services is within the mental health division of SLFNHA and is located at the 54 Queen Street Office.
This is a generalist rotation: Referrals are broad and include assessment and treatment of all forms of pathology in a rural setting. The resident would be assigned cases based on their current development, their training needs, and their future practice plans, allowing them to focus in one particular area within the generalist approach, if desired.
Assessment, intervention, and consultations are provided to individuals, groups, families, and other community service providers though an emphasis is put on the needs of children first.
Due to low housing vacancy rates, shared accommodations (typically with other residents or visiting health professionals who are in and out of the city) are provided as an option for the residents who are matched to this rotation in Sioux Lookout.
The accommodations are in addition to the salary given to residents. Pets are not allowed in the shared accommodations. The resident may also choose to arrange alternate accommodation if they desire at their own cost.
