What is Project AWARE?
(Advancing Wellness And Resiliency in Education)
The Project AWARE Grant promotes youth mental health awareness among schools and the community, with the goal of improving connections to services for school-age youth.
Project AWARE is designed to expand the capacity of State Educational Agencies in partnership with State Mental Health Agencies and Local Education Agencies to:
Increase awareness of mental health issues among school-age youth.
Train educators and other youth-serving adults to detect and respond to mental health needs.
Connect children, youth, and families who may experience behavioral health issues to appropriate services.
The AWARE Grant Manager and Counselor will provide support services for students and will help coordinate educational opportunities for parents and the community.
