May 2018 – In her role as International Chair of the Wharerātā Group, Rose participated in meetings with Sami and Indigenous leaders in mental health from around the world in Karasjok, Norway, and Stockholm, Sweden, at the International Initiative for Mental Health Leadership.  It’s always a great day to meet new friends and learn more about SANKS, the Sami mental health organization in Norway.  Read more on the Wharerātā Group’s site.

Part of the tour included the Sami Parliament, and an opportunity to discuss best practices in country-wide reconciliation efforts with Sami parliamentarians.
