HIR Wellness

"Illness becomes Wellness when I becomes WE"

Healing Intergenerational Roots [HIR] for All Nations, One Tribe.

Providing the next generation of care to Victims of Crime through a survivor and women-led organization.

 

 

MISSION

Establish a social justice-informed and culturally rooted Intergenerational Healing Approach™ that improves mental health and wellness outcomes for Indigenous and underserved communities. 

 

VISION

Our vision is to create the future leaders and healers for the next generation, with respect to our relationship with one another and our ancestors. Embodying organizational resiliency requires a new paradigm shift that looks to our past, recognizes the present, and considers all things for future generations. Decolonizing Mental Health is Social Justice in Mental Health. It means to deconstruct and dismantle power structures, racism, and the behaviorally-focused interventions used as part of the healing "treatment" process. It is the understanding that historical trauma healing goes beyond Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) and demands Healing Informed Practices (HIP). Our communities of generational wounding need long-term healing, and part of this is JUSTICE-focused work that goes beyond reflective practice and calls upon the Children's Fire to bring all voices together. 

Healing Intergenerational Roots (HIR) Wellness Institute inspired by the ancestral teachings and Indigenous knowledge of The Children’s Fire. This is reflected in our omni-dimensional organizational network and system that embodies a decentralized heterarchical and shared governance model, rooted in Indigenous practices.

The two laws of the Children’s Fire: 

  • The Children’s Fire must forever keep going

  • The feminine must be protected

We will always seek to protect our future by pledging that no harm will come to our children by doing what is in their best interest and nurture the continuation of our ways. Our programming fosters a community-informed practice that addresses the complex impact of  historical and intergenerational trauma through applying an Intergenerational Healing Informed Approach™.

 

MEDICINE IN ACTION

At HIR Wellness we have intergenerational, communal, and culturally rooted mental health services and wellness programming, and trainings. It is our belief that we heal in relationships, alongside culture, and within community.
