This is a learning collaborative for state-level Project AWARE staff from mental health agencies, universities and education agencies in Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas. Project AWARE (Advancing Wellness and Resilience in Education) grants are State Education Agency grants awarded by SAMHSA. The purpose of Project AWARE grants is to build or expand the capacity of State Educational Agencies, in partnership with State Mental Health Agencies overseeing school-aged youth and local education agencies, to: (1) increase awareness of mental health issues among school-aged youth; (2) provide training for school personnel and other adults who interact with school-aged youth to detect and respond to mental health issues; and (3) connect school-aged youth, who may have behavioral health issues (including serious emotional disturbance or serious mental illness), and their families to needed services.

 

This event is by invitation only. For more information, contact Michelle Monk at michelle.monk@austin.utexas.edu.
