Who We Are
Here at Be More Aware, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. Since our founding in 2019, we have been determined to make an impact. Our aim is to teach students how to effectively handle distress by “reaching in” and utilizing personal coping strategies, “reaching out” by seeking and accepting help outside of themselves, or a combination of the two. The core of our efforts is to build resiliency in the middle, high school, and college students by giving them the tools to handle stress and distress now and in their future.
May 2nd - 8th, 2021, is Children's Mental Health Awareness Week in Maryland. Mental health refers to a person’s overall behavioral, social, emotional, and psychological well-being. Mental health impacts how we think, feel, and act, including how a child feels about themselves, relates to other children and adults and handles change, stress and other life situations. One in five children experiences a mental, emotional, or behavioral health problem before age 18. These problems affect children of all demographic groups, regardless of education, income, race or culture.
