Our Approach

Expert Insight and Technical Assistance

Each college and university is supported by one of our trained Campus Advisors, professionals in higher education and public and mental health who understand the opportunities and challenges of colleges and universities. 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 Community

No two campuses are the same, which is why we conduct a thorough evaluation of your specific college or university’s strengths and student mental health needs. We then help you create an institution-wide strategic plan that will efficiently and effectively enhance what already works and innovate to address unmet needs and create a safety net specific to your students.

Best Practices to Enhance Your Policies, Programs, and Resources

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

Committed to Affordability

JED is dedicated to making our programs accessible to colleges and universities. Learn more about our fee structure and opportunities for funding JED Campus programs at your college or university.
