Osceola School District Awarded Two-Year Federal Grant Of $94,560 For Project AWARE
The Osceola School District has been awarded a two-year Project AWARE (Advancing Wellness and Resilience in Education) federal grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to support the training of school personnel and other adults who interact with youth in both school settings and communities to detect and respond to mental illness in children and youth in the community. These individuals will be trained in Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA), a course that teaches participants how to help youth who are developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis. The training helps them identify, understand, and respond to signs of mental illnesses and substance use disorders.
