The Hilo Medical Center invites residents to a suicide prevention workshop.

This two-day workshop will enable participants to respond knowledgeably and competently to
persons at risk of suicide. Participants will learn and practice skills in identifying and responding to
people at immediate risk of suicide.

Just as “CPR” skills make physical first aid possible, training in suicide intervention develops the skills used in suicide first aid. This interactive workshop will give you the training that you need in order to be a care‐giving resource within your community.

The workshop will run on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 10 and 11, 2018 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Check-in from 8 a.m. and the training will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. at the Hilo Medical Center located at 1190 Waianuenue Ave. in Hilo.


A few things to remember is that attendees must be present to for both full days to receive certification, be on time and meals will not be provided, but there will be time to purchase food onsite.


Interested in attending? Register here as pre‐registration is necessary to attend a training session.

Please note that those who have experienced a recent loss to suicide may find attending suicide prevention trainings very difficult and are cautioned against participating.
