MA'LAK NA HA'ÅNI
Ma'lak na Ha'åni or Bright Futures is a program of WestCare Pacific Islands Inc. and is intended to serve Guam's youth ages 11-17, following the aftermath of 2018's Typhoon Mangkhut.
In collaboration with the Guam Department of Education, Ma'lak na Ha'åni aims to provide critical mental health support and treatment services, such as therapy or counseling, for this vulnerable population through school site based programming at three northern schools, F.B. Leon Guerrero Middle School, Benavente Middle School, and Okkodo High School.
Funded by the US Department of Health and Human Services - Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Ma'lak na Ha'åni's services include evidence based programs such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Support for Students Exposed to Trauma (SSET).
