There are nearly 38,000 Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders living in Utah and many are dealing with major life crises. Robert’s Place has developed a safe haven that provides immediate relief for Pacific Islanders in crisis. They intervene in suicidal behavior and can help you feel safe and connected.
There are many suicide prevention and resources available throughout Utah, but Robert’s Place focuses on connecting with cultural values and traditions to overcome internal conflicts we often feel -but can’t explain.
Robert’s Place educates the community to recognize signs of suicidal behavior, improve access to mental healthcare, strengthen family and community connections, and increase awareness all while being sensitive to Pacific Islander culture and beliefs. They have specially trained cultural navigators available to provide the care you need through 24-hour virtual care. To learn more, donate, or to participate visit robertsplace.org.
SelectHealth recognizes the power of connection amplified by Robert’s Place as another example of how Utah Gives Back.
