Guam - The Department of Mental Health's Peace Office kicked off its 5th Annual Peace Conference this morning at The Westin on Tumon Bay. The conference, which focuses on preventing substance abuse and suicide, includes both local and off-island speakers, and guests from throughout the region.
Community liaison Janet Nemra is here representing the Republic of the Marshall Islands and told KUAM News, "I hope next time all the things we're going to learn there we will take home and implement them. And I'd like to thank the peace conference and the people responsible for this workshop for inviting people from RMI to come and learn from here."
The conference will conclude Saturday evening.
