The U.S. territory of Guam is requesting funding to support Project LINC which stands for Linking Individuals in Nurturing Communities. The population of focus will include children and adolescents ages 5-18 years old that are experiencing homelessness and who have a Serious Emotional Disturbance (SED) or Co-Occurring Disorder (COD) which is defined as an individual with both a psychiatric diagnosis and substance use disorder. Guam Behavioral Health and Wellness Center (GBHWC) has been the single state agency for both mental health and substance abuse on the island for over 30 years. Over the past 15 years, the child/adolescent services division (I Famagu’on-ta) has led the System of Care for children’s mental health in Guam and in the Micronesian region. The three most frequently reported SEDs experienced by I Famagu’on-ta youth are Major Depressive Disorders, Conduct Disorders, and Hyperactivity/Attention Deficit Disorders. Suicide also continues to plague the island as the sixth leading cause of death with 50 individuals, or about 1 person a week who died by suicide – 22% of them between the ages of 10-19 in 2016. Although we are isolated, our strategic location has played a role in the movement of alcohol and illicit drugs into the island. Twenty-five percent of public high school students report currently drinking alcohol and 30% report that they currently use marijuana. Additionally, Guam’s Drug & Alcohol division reports that the inhaling of butane, gasoline, and other chemicals are on the rise amongst youth. Guam’s latest homeless data show that in 2016, 112 individuals resided in shelters, but there were 973 homeless individuals – almost half of them children – whose nighttime residence was a public or private place not designed or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings such as in a car, park, abandoned building, bus station, or within the jungles of Guam. Although I Famagu’on-ta has made a lot of headway through the years, there is still a lot of needs to address. Project LINC proposes to serve at least 25 youth and their families in the first year, and no less than 50 youth annually thereafter, to ultimately serve over 225 youth for the length of the project period.
