Guam - How to address the emotional needs of youth is focus of the Systems of Care Regional Conference, which kicked-off today at The Westin on Tumon Bay.  Internationally recognized doctors are here to train local professionals on assessing the needs of adolescent consumers, and providing them with the most effective services.

Annie Unpingco is the administrator for children's services of Project I Famagu'onta, and told KUAM News, "It's a way to improve our services, and that's really one of our commitments at Mental Health - to improve the services that we provide to people. We're always learning its using what we learned in science and putting it into practice."

The conference continues tomorrow, Thursday and Friday.
