Presented By
: Mental Health of America of Hawai'i 
The mission of Mental Health America of Hawaii is to promote mental wellness through education, advocacy, and service. We endeavor to reduce the stigma of mental illness and improve the overall care, treatment and empowerment of those with mental illnesses – children, adults, elders – and their families.
Description of Workshop and Objectives: 
This workshop will be run by Mental Health America of Hawai`i (MHAH), as part of their Youth Suicide and Bullying Prevention (YSBP) innititative. Since its creation in 2008, over 20,000 youth and adults in Hawai`i have been trained in the YSBP curriculum. Based on local and national statistics, and real experiences of local youth, the YSBP training increases knowledge and understanding of bullying and suicide, identifies risk factors and warning signs, and provides skills and resources for youth to help prevent or intervene.

By the end of the 2-Day Workshop, participants will:
  • Be introduced to and unpack the YSBP curriculum
  • Explore recommended best practices for working with youth in bullying and suicide prevention
  • Practice facilitating the YSBP training
  • Become certified YSBP Trainers who are qualified and equipped to deliver trainings to youth in their communities
