Thunderbird Partnership Foundation
The Native Wellness Assessment (NWA) is the first instrument of its kind which measures the effect of cultural interventions on a person’s wellness, from a whole person and strengths-based perspective. It is statistically and psychometrically validated as a reliable measure of change in wellness over time, across all genders, age groups and cultures.
The NWA is an Indigenous knowledge-based instrument that demonstrates the effectiveness of First nations culture as a health intervention in addressing substance use and mental health issues. It measures the impact of cultural interventions on client wellness and proves something that First Nations peoples have long known; culture is the key to restoring and maintaining wellness.
