Mardi Moore, Executive Director of Out Boulder County and Sam Field, LPC of Field Therapy discuss a new mental health pilot program, The Point/El Puente.
The program arose from suicides in our Boulder county community and the recognition that so much more timely mental health help is needed in these stressful times. They explain what the free program is about and how anyone 18 and over can access it along with their vision for next steps to expand the program.
The program is supported by Boulder County and The Community Foundation Serving Boulder County in addition to Out Boulder County, Field Therapy, and the Umbrella Collective.
