National Suicide Prevention Month

Suicide affects everyone, but there are some populations that are disproportionately affected. By knowing the risk factors and who is more prone to mental illness and suicidal ideation, you can better enact a community prevention plan.

Advancing Wellness And Resilience in Education

Project_AWARE_Ohio_logo_color.jpgProject AWARE Ohio is a partnership between the Ohio Department of Education, the Center for School Based-Mental Health Programs at Miami University and the educational service centers within three pilot communities: Cuyahoga County, Warren County and Wood County. Funded through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Project AWARE Ohio supports schools and communities in:

  • Raising awareness of behavioral health issues among school-aged youth;
  • Providing training to detect and respond to mental health challenges and crisis in children and young adults; and
  • Increasing access to behavioral health supports for children, youth and families.


Increasing Skills to Identify and Respond to Signs of Mental Health Problems in School Age Youth - Statewide Resources and trainings available to school staff and community partners raise awareness of the mental health needs of youth and how to intervene.
