Guam - The Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse will kick off its two-day Peace Conference tomorrow at The Westin on Tumon Bay.  The Peace Office is the prevention and training branch of mental health and focuses on enhancing mental health and preventing and reducing alcohol, tobacco and other drug use and their related problems. 

Conference co-chair Audrey Topasna says the conference has come a long way in its five years, telling KUAM News, "This year's conference is going to highlight the successes of our peace partners over the past five years, which led to increasing community awareness, implementing evidence-based programs in the community, as well as changing community norms through legislative policies."

The program will feature workshops and presentations by both local and off-island speakers.  It begins tomorrow morning.
