On May 19th, the Department of Health and Social Development (DHSD) submitted a request to Nunatsiavut Beneficiaries to design a logo.
Gwen Watts is Director of Mental Health and Addictions with DHSD.
She says they have selected Thomas Semigak of Nain for the winning entry.
Watts says the logo will be used for their Mental Wellness and Healing programs.
The unveiling of the logo will be made in early September when they travel to all of the Nunatsiavut Communities.
The designing of the symbol required a meaning for Inuit, something distinctive to the culture and something that is recognized as their own.
DHSD hopes the symbol will come to represent hope & new beginnings for Labrador Inuit who will be using the services.
