Well Living House at the Centre for Urban Health Solutions (C-UHS) at St. Michael’s Hospital is an action research centre that focuses on Indigenous infant, child, and family health and wellbeing. At its heart is an aspiration to be a place where Indigenous people can come together to gather, understand, link, and share knowledge about happy and healthy child, family, and community living.
The centre is built from a foundation of almost two decades of collaborative work between Indigenous health researchers, front line health practitioners, and Indigenous community Grandparents. The long-term vision of the Well Living House is that every Indigenous infant will be born into a context that promotes health and wellbeing – at the individual, family, and community levels.
We plan to achieve this vision by improving health policies, services, and programs through knowledge work: conducting research, building knowledge networks, and providing training. In all that we do, the Well Living House is committed to using and protecting our Indigenous knowledge, languages, and ways of working.
