HHS Mental Health Grants Announced

HHS, through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, announced more than $47 million in new grant funding opportunities, designated by the Bipartisan Safer communities Act, that will go to programs to develop a sustainable infrastructure for school-based mental health programs and assist high-risk youth and families by promoting resilience and equity in communities.

These programs include:


1. Project Advancing Wellness and Resiliency in Education (AWARE) to develop a sustainable infrastructure for school-based mental health programs and services that promote the healthy social and emotional development of school-aged youth and prevent youth violence in school settings.


2. Resiliency in Communities after Stress and Trauma (ReCAST), which helps assist high-risk youth and families by promoting resilience and equity in communities that have recently faced civil unrest, community violence, and/or collective trauma through implementation of evidence-based, violence prevention, and community youth engagement programs, as well as linkages to trauma-informed behavioral health services.


The new grant funding opportunities build on previous actions announced by HHS earlier this year.
