Access Health will support the training of 1,000 teachers and other youth-serving adults in Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) throughout Sagadahoc County and the communities of Brunswick and Harpswell in midcoast Maine. According to the Maine Integrated Youth Health Survey (2013), the percentage of high school youth in the catchment area who reported that they felt sad or hopeless every day for two weeks or more is higher than the percentage for the state of Maine as a whole. Also higher than the state average is the percentage of youth in the catchment area who had seriously considered suicide in the past 12 months. These adolescents in crisis are not getting the help they need - of the 29.6% of youth who reported feeling sad and hopeless, only 22.5% report getting help from an adult. To help ensure that adolescent youth in the catchment area are ready to learn and able to transition successful from high school to the next stage of their lives, Project Aware will: increase the mental health literacy of adults who interact with adolescents in Brunswick, Harpswell and Sagadahoc County as measured by a ten percentage point increase in the number of youth who report receiving help from an adult when feeling sad or hopeless; increase the capacity of 1,000 adults - particularly teachers and middle and high school; increase awareness of and promote positive behavioral health; link adolescents with behavioral health issues to mental, emotional and behavioral health assistance and services as measured by an increase in the number of youth ages 12 - 18 from the catchment area assessed by our behavioral health partners from 250 to 400 and the number who received a psychiatric diagnostic interview from 190 to 300; and increase the number of relevant youth serving community agencies and programs with trained first aiders from 0 to 50.
