Project AWARE Ohio
Advancing Wellness and Resilience in Education
Project AWARE Ohio was a partnership between the Ohio Department of Education, the Center for School Based-Mental Health Programs at Miami University and the educational service centers within three pilot communities: Cuyahoga County, Warren County and Wood County. Funded through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Project AWARE Ohio supported schools and communities in:
- Raising awareness of behavioral health issues among school-aged youth;
- Providing training to detect and respond to mental health challenges and crisis in children and young adults; and
- Increasing access to behavioral health supports for children, youth and families.
Increasing Skills to Identify and Respond to Signs of Mental Health Problems in School Age Youth - Statewide resources created through the Project AWARE initiative are available to school staff and community partners. These resources help to raise awareness of the mental health needs of youth and how to intervene.
