Courageous Conversations
Join us on Wednesday, October 28th, from 12-2pm on the Library Lanai for a fun and educational event on Bystander Intervention. The event hopes to encourage well-being through healthy relationships & learn how to recognize signs of unhealthy behaviors as well as how to safely intervene when we see something is wrong.

Need Help? Come On in
Did you know that on Wednesday afternoons you can simply walk into Counseling Services (SSC E-203) and speak with a Counselor on the spot? It's true! Sessions run 30-minutes. No appointment necessary, no commitment for future sessions, and it's a free service for UH Hilo students.

Take Time for Mental Health
Mindwise has a great collection of screenings available to the UH Hilo Community. During this time, we may fall into habits we wouldn't have otherwise. A self-assessment can determine any areas that need special attention. If you wish to speak with someone further, please contact Counseling Services at (808) 932-7465 or email: uhhcouns@hawaii.edu.

Question. Persuade. Refer.
QPR Gatekeeper Training for Suicide Prevention is a 1-2 hour educational program designed to teach students and faculty the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to respond in a helpful manner. Training sessions are scheduled frequently and have limited seating, so registration is recommended.
