Our Approach

Expert Insight and Technical Assistance

Each school is supported by one of our trained high school advisors, professionals in education and mental health who understand the challenges high schools 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 Community

No two schools are the same, which is why we conduct a thorough evaluation of your specific school or district’s strengths and student 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 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 all schools and districts. Learn more about our fee structure and opportunities for funding JED High School in your school or district.
