  • Project AWARE: Mental Health First Aid
    9/12/2016 8:30am: Community Education Programs
    Project Aware Laurie Best from the Office of Mental Health
    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is funding a program called Project AWARE. Specifically, The New York State Office of Mental Health’s Hutchings Psychiatric Center and SUNY Upstate Medical University have been awarded a $375,000 three-year grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to support the training of a diverse group of adults in Mental Health First Aid [MHFA]. The program will collaborate with community partners to improve mental health literacy in youth-serving organizations, specifically youth between the ages of 16-25 years.

    The specific goals of the program are to:

    1.) Improve mental health literacy and reduce stigma about mental illness in the community
    2.) Improve community capacity to respond to the behavioral health needs of transitional age youth
    3.) Promote early help-seeking behavior among transitional age youth to reduce rates of suicide, substance use and homelessness
    4.) Reduce disengagement among transitional age youth arising from the strong distinctions among child, youth and adult services.

    Class attendees must be 18 years of age or older and work with transitional age youth (16-25 years of age). This program is not for professionals in the mental health field.
