The community is invited to come and learn about local mental health resources, have insightful conversations and ask questions to panel members. The event is free and will also be available virtually via Zoom. See” Zoom Details” below for more information.

“Over the past two years, Mental Health has been discussed a lot – on TV, on podcasts, in publications, and even at kitchen tables. It is well researched that connecting to others and to nature help in managing anxiety. It is also well known that in crisis people call 911,” said Parks and Recreation Director Kristy Diaz-Trahan. “My vision is to have a community conversation about Mental Health in the context of what Parks and Recreation can offer, provide educational resources for a crisis or an emergency, and include professionals in the industry to create an inclusive discussion for our community.”

For questions about this event, please email the Parks and Recreation Department at or call at 520-229-5050.
