"In June 2001, Corrado Research and Evaluation Associates Inc. proceeded with a research project to examine the mental health outcomes of a sample of 127 Aboriginal people who had litigated the federal government of Canada, the United Church of Canada, the Anglican Church and the Roman Catholic Church for the abuse they suffered as residents of the residential school system. The Aboriginal Healing Foundation (AHF) provided the funding and policy directions for the research, which is intended to assist in understanding the extent, types and effects of physical, sexual and psychological/emotional abuse on the mental health of a sample of Aboriginal Survivors of the residential school system. Three clinicians who have extensive experience working with Aboriginal Survivors collaborated in the development of the research project and provided the case files that constitute the data base for this report". -- Project Background, p. 1.
