Stories have the power to change and save lives. They make us feel less alone, connect us to our communities, and inspire us to share our stories. At The Jed Foundation (JED) we share stories so teens and young adults know they’re not alone—no matter what they’re going through. There is support and help available right now.
This World Mental Health Day we invite you to join us, share your stories, connect with friends or family, and start a lifesaving conversation.
If you or someone you know needs to talk to someone right now, text, call, or chat 988 for a free confidential conversation with a trained counselor 24/7.
You can also contact the Crisis Text Line by texting HOME to 741-741.
If this is a medical emergency or if there is immediate danger of harm, call 911 and explain that you need support for a mental health crisis.
