Each year, The Jed Foundation (JED) honors one high school and one college student doing outstanding work to support their peers’ mental health and help prevent suicide among the nation’s teens and young adults.

Their efforts may involve raising community awareness, understanding, and action for young adult mental health, reducing stigma, encouraging their peers to reach out for support, or creating a community of care on their own campuses, among other initiatives.

Award winners receive:

  • A $3,000 cash scholarship
  • A trip to New York City to receive the award at the JED Gala
  • Recognition on JED’s website and social media platforms
  • Ongoing opportunities to collaborate with JED


The application period for JED’s 2023 Student Voice of Mental Health Awards program was conducted from January 31 to March 1, 2023.
