How Might your Community and Primary Care Reduce the Impact of Financial Strain

This website is a place where you can share your insights, experiences, and ideas in reducing impact on financial strain in your community.

Income is one of the most important factors that influences health. Financial strain is economic pressure that can cause stress and harm health.

Digital stories are a powerful way to create a meaningful discussion and simulate thoughtful change. We invite you to share the short videos with your teams, discuss what resonates (you may wish to use the questions at the end), what changes you might want to make and engage with others already doing this work using our Map and Forum.

The ‘Reducing the Impact of Financial Strain (RIFS)’ project will strengthen connections between community members and organizations including primary care teams. The aim is to collaboratively design local solutions to support health by addressing financial concerns in a sensitive, compassionate and sustainable way. While community looks at improving supports, Primary Care teams identify and support patients with financial concerns and help them access appropriate community supports.

    Organizers of the Poverty Simulation in Vermillion, Joanne Stewart, Carole Coleman, Natasja Hallett, and Charlotte Thompson walked in the shoes of families and individuals living in poverty.

    The Kalyna Country PCN staff, AHS teams, and Vermillion community members including business organizations and services groups were surprised by the numerous challenges and frustrations they encountered everyday and how it shifted their thinking from thriving to just surviving. Graphic Designer, Aaron Russell captured the event moments and some of those frustrations. The community aims to continue to explore the pain points and paths to financial wellness, knowing that health improves when financial strain is reduced.
