In 2023, the Student Services/Prevention and Wellness Team was awarded another five year, $9 million grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) to continue work in Project AWARE (Advancing Wellness and Resiliency in Education). Through targeted efforts with two LEA sites and 12 regional partners, the primary objectives of the project include:

  • Increasing LEA capacity to connect children and youth to appropriate school and community mental health services.
  • Increasing mental health literacy for students, staff, and the community.
  • Focusing on partnerships and collaboration between state, regional, and local systems to promote the healthy development of school-aged youth.
  • Building regional capacity to support Comprehensive School Mental Health System Implementation.
