Since 2006, the State Epidemiologic Outcomes Workgroup (SEOW) has been providing epidemiologic services to the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division (ADAD) of the Hawaiʻi Department of Health. The SEOW has evolved to focus on underage drinking and substance use due to the focus of the federal grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA): Strategic Prevention Framework Partnerships for Success (SPF-PFS). Based at the University of Hawaii Myron B. Thompson School of Social, the SEOW welcomes all stakeholders interested in using epidemiologic data to inform public health planning. The SEOW hosts a quarterly meeting where individuals/organizations have the opportunity to share information about their substance use data.
Men experience rejection, abandonment, feelings of inadequacy, and loss. These experiences can leave crater sized holes in us. The brokenness left by divorce, the physical and emotional pain caused by intimate partner abuse, the sting of rejection and abandonment, and the devastation suicide leaves behind are some examples of ways we can experience this. Join Matt as he shares practically and experientially about their impact and strategies to get better.
Laura Stack, the founder of Johnny's Ambassadors, will be discussing the loss of her son, Johnny, the dangers of today’s potent marijuana on adolescent brain development, and the connection of youth marijuana use to mental illness and suicide.
