About Todu Guam CARES Movement

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit last March 2020, thousands of people
in Guam were displaced. Many suffered including students like you.
COVID-19 has changed our lives and the way we learn.
Sometimes you’re learning with your friends. And there are
other times when we learn separately, in front of
our computers. This has left us sometimes feeling sad,
disconnected, missing each other, and lost.

We understand what you’re going through and want to provide you with support.

Toduguam Cares movement

That’s why the Todu Guam CARES (Community Approach to Resiliency and Engagement for Students) Movement was born. We see you, and we understand what you’re going through.

Let us support your emotional and mental health today.

*Community Approach to Resiliency and Engagement for Students

This is for you if...

You’re Unable to Speak About Your Thoughts and Emotions

You Don’t Understand What’s Going on with Yourself

You’re Battling your Demons and You’re just Trying to Survive Each Day

You Think You Maybe Depressed or Anxious


We’re here for you and your families
as you go through your mental health journey.

The key is to develop the life skills that will help us learn, grow, and believe in ourselves.

At the same time, it will allow us to gain an appreciation for others and become more aware of other people’s feelings.

To do so, we focus on these four areas:

Social Intelligence
