BHP staff members participated in a six month Herbal Foundation Apprenticeship instructed by Valerie Segrest. Two mental health counselors and one outreach aid (Muckleshoot Tribal Member) participated to gain field experience harvesting, identifying traditional plants of the Muckleshoot People to gain an understanding of how plant teachings offer support with social and emotional health. The course was supported by SAMSHA Harvesting Our Wellness Grant. The second phase of this program includes the addition of apothecary cabinets at Adult BHP, FYS, and Sacred House to offer traditional medicines and incorporate more holistic methods of healing.
Distributed close to 1400 Narcan kits from January to October 2022 in an initiative to increase awareness and to prevent overdoses in the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe through community engagement and support events.
