New Veteran Affairs program keen on applying innovative treatments for mental health


Imagine a device that can help treat depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and smoking addiction, to name a few. The Todu Guam Foundation, in line with their Mindcare project, which launches in the coming months, recently obtained Guam’s first transcranial magnetic stimulation device.

Noting the mental and behavioral health challenges on Guam, the non-profit organization Todu Guam Foundation sought out-of-the-box strategies and action. Lena Calvo Rodriguez, president of the Todu Guam Foundation, told KUAM News, “Through our mental health program, we have seen the need for innovative therapy. We’ve really done our research to bring the best to our island.”

“Being able to have this machine in our center is really something we’re excited about,” she added.
