About Robert's Place

What Is Robert's Place?

Robert's Place is our solution to help Pacific Islanders to overcome suicidal behaviors. We know that suicide prevention crisis resources and services are available to all.  And we know our community is ready to seek knowledge to understand ways we can overcome any hint of suicide. There is much to learn about how we make sense of our life experiences. As we look back at our cultural values and traditions, we can see how they have blessed our current way of living. However, we need to connect our practices to new ways and new experiences to overcome the internal conflicts we often feel but cannot explain.

Our organization is deeply committed to connecting and integrating new ways to learn and understand mental health with our cultural knowledge and practices in order to return and sustain a full and happy life.
