Project AWARE

Advancing Wellness and Resiliency in Education

What is Project AWARE? 

Project AWARE grants promote youth mental health awareness among schools and communities and improve connections to services for school-age youth. Project AWARE is designed to help state and local agencies:

  • Increase awareness of mental health issues among school-age youth
  • Train educators and other youth-serving adults to detect and respond to mental health issues
  • Connect children, youth, and families who may experience behavioral health issues with appropriate services

Through Project AWARE, two additional counselors have been added to the staff at Woodward Public Schools. The AWARE Counselors will provide additional support services for students and will coordinate educational opportunities for parents and the community.

In addition to the newly-hired AWARE Counselors, each school in the district is staffed with a highly-qualified school counselor. School counselors are vital members of every child's educational team. They educate students in the areas of academic achievement, college and career readiness, and social/emotional development, helping students become productive, well-adjusted adults.
