By Eric Shih Local Journalism Initiative Reporter Mental health service providers in Kenora are offering services in the wake of the announcement by Wauzhushk Onigum Nation that 171 plausible burials had been found at the former St. Mary’s Indian Residential School site. The Kenora Youth Hub announced it was holding space and providing access to counselling support and traditional medicines as needed. It said because of current events, it would extend counselling services for people outside its 12-25 year old age service range. The agency offers counselling on a walk-in basis daily Monday through Friday from noon until 6 p.m. The CMHA Kenora Branch posted a reminder that crisis workers were available 24/7. The Lake of the Woods District Hospital also offered its support to the people of Wauzhushk Onigum
