WE ALL HAVE THE POWER TO
CHANGE THE FREQUENCY.
Project AWARE is committed to Changing the Frequency of which mental health education and awareness is practiced in schools and the community—to shape positive habits, coping techniques, and foster safe and healthy environments for all students.
Project AWARE values all students and families by acknowledging diverse individual and community needs, differing access to resources or lack thereof, and the historical impact of disparities and inequity within marginalized and oppressed people groups. With consideration for individuals from all cultural, racial and ethnic backgrounds, sexual and gender identities, geographic locations and socioeconomic status, we work to create equitable environments in all activities, systems, policies and materials associated with Project AWARE. We recognize that advancing wellness and resiliency throughout Indiana schools means working to create a state in which all students have the opportunity to succeed and be well.
