State: OH
Grant Award Number: 1 H79 SM062813-01
Congressional District: 10
FY 2015 Funding: $125,000
Project Period: 2015/09/30 - 2018/09/29

The East Dayton AWARE Project provides Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) trainings to adults who interact with transition-aged youth, ages 16-24, in the 45403 and 45410 zip code areas in East Dayton, Ohio. Six MHFA Instructors provide 12 trainings per year for three years to certify 900 people as First Aiders. Transition-aged youth (TAY) in this catchment area experience high poverty rates, failing schools, a lack of employment opportunities, insecure attachments with adults, unsafe neighborhoods, and deteriorating housing. The most common diagnoses are Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, bipolar, depression, anxiety, and opioid-related substance use disorders. EDAP will saturate the East Dayton area with one certified First Aider to every five-to-six TAY. This is a saturation rate of 18% and will be accomplished by training 300 First Aiders per year, for a total of 900 trained by the end of the third year. Wellness Support meetings will provide ongoing support for newly certified First Aiders who may have been emotionally impacted by their act of helping others. The project's measurable objectives are: train six instructors to provide 12 MHFA courses per year resulting in 900 First Aiders within three years; achieve 75% participation from youth-serving agencies; increase First Aiders' knowledge of signs, symptoms, and risk factors of mental illnesses; increase First Aiders' help-seeking behaviors; improve First Aiders' own mental wellness; improve First Aiders' knowledge of professional and self-help resources; increase First Aiders' confidence in providing help to people experiencing mental health problems; reduce First Aiders' perceived stigma towards mental health disorders; complete 20 Memorandums of Understanding with TAY-serving organizations; increase the number of First Aiders who report using the MHFA Action Plan; and increase the number of First Aiders who report providing referral information to mental health services.
