Life ends in death, and there's no changing that. But when death is self-inflicted, the heartache continues often for decades. In this suicide prevention month, we consider the different populations of all ages at risk in Hawaii, the national conversation on suicide and the approach family and friends can take to intervene before tragedy may happens.
Continuing this week’s focus on Hawai‘i homelessness, our panel of three of Oʻahu’s top homeless outreach providers: Greg Payton, Chair of Partners in Care; Sheila Beckham, CEO of Waikiki Health; and Scott Fuji, Interim Executive Director of PHOCUSED.
National reproductive advocate, and a former UH medical school professor, Dr. Willie Parker was recently in Hawai‘i. We had the chance to sit down for an extended conversation before he returned to the mainland. Tonight on Town Square, he talks about his profession of faith as his steadfast as his abortion care in places including Mississippi, where that care is otherwise unavailable. This is a recorded interview, and the phone lines will not be available.
It’s an often repeated mantra: reduce, reuse and recycle. Many people are pretty good about that in the short term, but when it comes to building or remodeling, the lure of the new is often compelling. Our panel says there’s an even better case to be made for reusing building materials and it’s not just about the money. Panel: Quinn Vittum, Executive Director, Re-use Hawai'i:Lynn Johnson, Reuse Board member, designer and builder of sustainable homes, Lynne Johnson and restaurateur, Ed Kenney. 5 PM on HPR-2.
