Text, Talk, Set to Go

Group of young mixed race students with mobile phones. Excited students using their technological devices.

Junior and senior year come with a whole range of emotions and, sometimes, mental health challenges. That’s why JED created Text, Talk, Set to Go, a free, interactive tool to help students take care of themselves while they manage the challenges of their last two years of high school. 

Text, Talk, Set to Go combines text messaging with small group discussion so juniors and seniors can connect and build a support network while learning how to reach out for support when they need it, help their peers, and develop self-care strategies. 

After just three sessions, students will walk away with strategies they can use to cope with and navigate challenges during these years of transition and beyond. 

Here’s How It Works

  • To begin, gather students into groups of three or four with one cell phone per group.
  • Have each group text SetToGo to 833-440-2220.
  • The group will receive a series of discussion questions to lead them through each activity.
  • At the end of the activity, facilitate a large group discussion of the activity (see the Facilitator Guide below).
