What does your donation do?
For most of us, our college years represent a time of exploration and learning, of growth and anticipation, of independence and confidence. They represent the transition to adulthood, to a career, a life of one’s own, to a future of possibility.
But for many of us, these years can also be a time of isolation, of social anxiety and intense peer pressure. We see these issues too often in the headlines: a death from binge drinking, a drug overdose, a university shooting, a suicide. These tragedies affect entire communities—students, faculty, coaches, professors, and parents alike. Even more jarring is that these tragedies are avoidable. They can be prevented.
This is why The Jed Foundation takes a comprehensive approach to prevent high-risk behavior among students. We help colleges assess and improve their emotional health efforts and inform the student conversation through partnerships and campaigns to build the foundation for an emotionally healthy environment—the kind of environment that is characterized by caring and connectedness, that celebrates and protects every student life.
