Aurora Public Schools Project AWARE aims to build capacity for a comprehensive school behavioral health system that supports every student in reaching his or her fullest potential.

Project AWARE aims to provide coordinated, data-driven systems for supporting the emotional and behavioral health, wellness, and resilience of our students, families and the community.

A Story is a comprehensive, district-wide, grassroots driven storytelling project which will address the following goal of Project AWARE:

“Increase awareness of mental health issues among school-aged youth, reduce stigma and promote positive behavioral health as part of overall health and wellness which is essential to learning.“
