Healing the Healers on February 28th

Hoʻoikaika Cares: Healing the Healers

We are so happy to announce Ho’oikaika Cares-Healing the Healers monthly sessions for the next year! Co-facilitated by Michele Navarro Ishiki of MNI Counseling and Heidi Allencastre, Hoʻoikaika Navigator at Maui Family Support Services, activities include time to connect; creative, calming self-care; and lunch.

This is a safe, supportive space for providers to decompress and focus on their mental health and wellness. As we all know, self-care is extremely important but with short staffing, high caseloads, and everything that Maui families are experiencing right now, providers don’t always prioritize their self-care. We encourage all directors and supervisors to allow staff to attend these sessions on paid time.

Healing the Healers is a supportive wellness hui and safe space for providers to share and connect and refill their cups so that they can continue to pour themselves into the families of Maui. Please share this flier and registration in the different spaces and initiatives that you are in and with your staff.


Wednesday, February 28

9:00 – 11:00 am

J.W. Cameron Center Auditorium

We will provide light snacks and beverages.

There are up to 40 spots available. If you register and cannot attend, please notify Heidi so someone else may benefit and we can be pono with stewardship of these funds.

It was so calming and worth going. To take some time off of work and the painting and word exercise was amazing.
