Project AWARE brings together students, parents, educators, mental health providers, local law enforcement and juvenile justice agencies, as well as other community-based organizations, to talk about mental health promotion, school climate and violence prevention. The Shelton School District and its partners are working to create a safe school environment that provides mental health services to students in need, addresses violence prevention, and establishes safe school policies.
