Guam - The opportunity for consumers to voice their concerns with the Department of Mental Health will come next week. Representatives with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration will be on island next week meeting to meet with local officials and consumers about the services being provided at the facility.

Guam Mental Health Planning Council Chairperson Gina Harka says they will be having site briefings with the SAMHSA reps as well as develop a comprehensive community-based system of care. "They are doing an evaluation of the facility and then they are going to offer recommendations to the federal management team and the director," she said.

The meeting will be held from March 14 through the 17th at the Mental Health facility in Tamuning.
