The Missoula Urban Indian Health Center (MUIHC) serves the urban Indian population in Missoula County and surrounding areas in Western Montana by offering a comprehensive holistic healing model for those struggling with historical trauma. This project will focus on increasing MUIHC’s capacity to provide culturally adapted, evidence-based, and trauma-informed awareness and care to the more than 540 active clients they see every year. As part of the project, they will incorporate the self-help techniques of the Community Resiliency Model for community members, and the Trauma Resiliency Model for counselors and therapists to incorporate into client therapy.
