From the language Kilivila, spoken near Papua New Guinea, mokita means “a known truth that is left unspoken.” Think of it as, “the elephant in the room.” These brown bag luncheon discussions will address some of the elephants among us, critical social concerns that impact the mental well-being of our residents and the development of our community. Each Mokita(TM) Dialogue session will include presentations, group discussions, activities, and opportunities for follow-up and action.
