"Advancing Wellness and Resiliency in Education" through School - Behavior Health Partnerships

Nebraska's AWARE-SEA Project is being jointly undertaken by the Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) and Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services - Division of Behavioral Health (DHHS-DBH) to build and enhance partnerships and collaboration between state and local systems to improve school-based behavioral health services.  Funded by a five-year grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services - Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA), this project focuses on promoting the healthy development of students in rural areas through:

  • Positive, supportive and trauma-informed learning environments;
  • Skills fostering resilience and pro-social behavior;
  • School-based mental health services;
  • Identification, immediate response and appropriate clinical interventions; and 
  • Identification and intervention in bullying, aggression and violent behaviors that may contribute to school violence.
