Project AWARE

Project AWARE (Advancing Wellness and Resiliency in Education) 
For the last few years, conversations throughout the reservation have touched on a model of student support known as “trauma-informed care.” This model helps educate adult staff in schools to better recognize and respond to students who may be impacted by trauma. It is a community-based model and includes resources for students, parents, families, and neighbors. 
Our project has three goals:
  1. Increase knowledge of local school district staff members to identify, report, and support students demonstrating behavioral/mental health consequences of trauma. 
  2. Increase student access to culturally competent, evidence-based, behavioral/mental health counseling in their own schools.
  3. Increase positive student perception of the school environment.
