The provision of health services and programs in our community will be guided by the following principles:
- To acknowledge, recognize and respect all tribal cultures, traditional values and beliefs within the holistic concept of healing.
- To acknowledge that individuals are responsible for their own health. With the exception of suspected child abuse, suicidal tendencies or extreme mental distress, we respect a person’s right to live at risk and to accept or refuse non-mandatory services. Our primary goal is to provide care with dignity.
- To encourage and assist people to access needed health and social services and live healthy lifestyles.
- To ensure involvement of the Long Plain First Nation community regarding health programming with their wisdom through observing, experiencing and participating in life.
