Project Advancing Wellness and Resilience in Education (AWARE)

Overview

Utah's Project Advancing Wellness and Resilience in Education (AWARE) aims to build a comprehensive approach model to school-based mental health to increase mental health literacy and support services to schools and communities. The Utah State Board of Education will collaborate with behavioral health stakeholders across the state to improve mental health awareness and response. The four major goals in this project are:

  1. Increase student education on mental wellness
  2. Increase mental health screening for early identification
  3. Increase access to mental health care
  4. Increase educator training in mental health wellness, intervention, and crisis response

Interventions and services aligning to these goals are to implement evidence-based programs to improve school climate, link existing resources based on a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) behavioral health framework to support all students, and targeted services and support for American Indian/Alaskan Native students.
