The plan's mental health measures include expanding the mental healthcare workforce, implementing a program to help identify mental illness early in children, conducting federal research into gun violence, offering guidance to clinicians about reporting threats of violence in patients and clarifying long-anticipated federal regulations for a mental healthcare coverage parity law that has been on the books for years. The plan also laid out a new mental healthcare initiative called Project AWARE, an acronym for Advancing Wellness and Resilience in Education, which is supposed to reach some 750,000 young people through programs that identify mental illness early and also refer those individuals for treatment. Project AWARE includes $15 million for Mental Health First Aid, a training program that would help teachers and others who interact with children to identify and respond to mental illness in children and adults and also urge both adolescents and families with these problems to get treatment. Another $40 million in this project would be used to help school districts work with mental health agencies and law enforcement officials in communities to make sure students with mental health issues receive services they need. The plan does address the shortage of mental health professionals, which was one of several recommendations from the Mental Health Liaison Group, an organization of behavioral health associations including the American Psychiatric Association, the National Alliance on Mental Illness and the National Association of Psychiatric Health Systems.
