On Mental Health and Suicide Prevention

Mariposa Trails is dedicated to community learning. We believe in creating opportunities to learn, exchange ideas and that community conversations are a way to lead respect, empathy and at the same time value different adversities. We are all vulnerable to an emotional crisis and our goal is to build capacity in the community and value mental health as well as physical health.
