Welcome to the Community Guidance Center's Website
The Community Guidance Center (CGC), a division under the DPH, continues to be the primary provider of comprehensive mental health and substance abuse services for all individuals residing in the CNMI. The CGC incorporates all outpatient mental health services and administers all Federal health programs in the CNMI related to mental health and substance abuse, as well as all other publicly funded mental health services. All services and programs administered by the CGC are supervised by substance abuse and mental health program managers under the management of the Director of CGC, who is overseen by the Secretary of Health who in turn reports all activities directly to the Governor. It is the Director of CGC who continues to facilitate the integration of mental health and substance abuse services, as well as steering policy direction. Through collaboration and establishing interdependent relationships with other system providers, the CGC is committed to providing high quality mental health and substance abuse treatment and other therapeutic services to the multi-diverse population of the CNMI, as well support services to families and friends, community outreach, prevention and education services, and referral assistance to other community resources.
It has been the vision of the CGC to ensure that every individual who has made the CNMI their home may be able to live and interact with each other in a community that is not only nurturing to its spiritual growth, psychological balance, emotional stability, and physical well-being, but at the same time fostering the development and maintenance of a cooperative and harmonious society.
