QPR Suicide Prevention Gatekeeper Training [Free]

Thursday, September 22, 2016, 1:00pm – 2:30pm @ 
Student Services Center (SSC), room W-201

The Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR), is an evidence-based suicide prevention program that teaches gatekeepers how to identify the risk factors and warning signs of suicide, how to ask someone if they are thinking about suicide, persuade them to seek help, and refer them to the appropriate resources.

 Just as people trained in CPR help save thousands of lives each year by learning to recognize the warning signs of a coronary event and taking appropriate action, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and refer someone to the appropriate help. You can learn to save lives in this 1.5 hour training.

The University of Hawaiʻi, UH Hilo, and the and Hawaiʻi Department of Labor and Industrial Relations have entered into a partnership with the High Technology Development Center to explore the feasibility of establishing a multi-purpose processing facility in Hilo, to support  technology-based industries in Hilo.

This facility aims to advance tech-based industries, such as the Maunakea Observatories, on the Island of Hawaiʻi by developing a centralized facility to reduce the need to outsource work outside of Hawaiʻi and serve as a catalyst for workforce training and high wage jobs in Hilo.  These industries require the capabilities to perform fabrication, processing, verification, and validation of various technologies, instruments, payloads and systems. 

Proposals for this feasibility study are being accepted until September 20th, 2016. Interested vendors can find the complete RFP at http://htdc.org

The EIA Hawaiʻi Lecture Series presents Dr. Te Te Kīpa Kēpa Brian Morgan.  He will give a talk entitled "Intrinsic Value of Indigenous Ways of Knowing in Decision Making Frameworks: The Mauri Model and its potential contribution within the Context of Hawaiʻi Papao Ke Ao".

Dr. Kēpa Morgan’s Mauri Model is a decision making framework that communicates sustainability issues equally well in both indigenous and scientific paradigms. The Mauri Model also combines a stakeholder assessment of worldviews, with an impact assessment of indicators to determine sustainability and trends over time.

Wednesday 12:00pm - 2:00pm, September 7th, 2016 UH Hilo, UCB 127
