WV Aware (Advancing Wellness and Resilience in Education) is an initiative under President Obama. This grant was awarded to Berkeley County as well as two other counties in WV. The five year grant provides Berkeley County Schools with funding to increase access to mental health services for students and their families. Two points within the initiative are to keep schools safer and to increase access to mental health services. WV Aware seeks to integrate mental, behavioral and emotional health as well as provide access and funding for mental health services.
