Elder Roberta Price and Cluster co-Lead Helen Brown have submitted their Letter of Intent to the New Frontiers in Research 2019 Exploration Competition

This peer-led study will be guided by an Advisory of Indigenous Elders and people with lived experience of incarceration as well as other intersecting forms of institutionalization (e.g., child welfare, youth detention). The team and Advisory includes researchers and peer mentors with longstanding relationships with federal and provincial corrections, and organizations focused on service delivery across health, social service and justice contexts, including the Indian Residential School Survivors Society, the Vancouver Carnegie Centre (housing, employment & social service support for vulnerably housed individuals in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside), the UBC Collaborating Centre for Prison Health and Education (CPPHE) Unlocking the Gates program (peer mentorship to support women leaving prison in BC), and the UBC Transformative Health & Justice Research Cluster (our Community Advisory Network included!)
