Crisis Department

Nodin's Crisis Department is based out of Sioux Lookout and is there to respond to communities affected by tragic incidents in the First Nation communities.

This department does not provide crisis counselling on an individual basis. If you are seeking counselling and are going through a personal crisis, please see the list of resources available below. If you have an emergency which requires immediate assistance and someone's life is threatened, please refer to your community's emergency department (911 or local police detachment).
