The Mental Health Strategic Impact Initiative (S2i)

The Mental Health Strategic Impact Initiative (S2i) is a “think-and-do-tank” that catalyzes change to ensure that all people with mental health conditions can live the fullest possible lives in communities of their choice, and that public and private systems and resources are equitably and effectively devoted to that end. S2i holds that the authentic leadership of people with lived experience and the advancement of race equity are essential for that aim to be realized.

The Jed Foundation (JED) helped launch and incubate S2i for its first two years, providing active thought partnership as well as administrative and staffing support for seed projects, convenings, and more.

Although JED is no longer the administrative home of S2i, we are excited for continued collaboration. Visit to learn more.
