Our Approach

Expert Insight and Technical Assistance

Each community-based organization is supported by one of our trained advisors, professionals in mental health who understand the challenges youth-serving community-based organizations face. Their mission is to support and build your team’s capacity to achieve your goals. Your success is their success.


Data-Informed Actionable Plans, Customized to Your Needs

No two organizations are the same, which is why we conduct an evaluation of your organization’s strengths and youth mental health needs. We then help you create a strategic plan that will efficiently and effectively enhance what is already working and innovate to address unmet needs and create a safety net specific to your youth.

Best Practices to Enhance Your Policies, Programs, and Resources

JED is at the forefront of youth mental health and suicide prevention. We help you make informed decisions and enhance policies, programs, and resources with insight into clinically-reviewed and peer-informed best practices.
