The JED High School Journey
Partnering with High Schools to Support Emotional Well-being and Prevent Suicide
JED High School is a public health, systematic approach that helps districts/schools to assess and strengthen their policies, programs, and systems to equitably support emotional well-being and suicide prevention for all students. JED High School is an adaptation of JED Campus.
JED High School is an 18 to 24-month program designed to help districts/schools assess and enhance their efforts in the following key areas: developing life skills, promoting social connectedness and positive school climate, increasing help-seeking behaviors, recognizing and responding to students at risk, promoting well-being and access to mental health services, following crisis management procedures, and creating a safe environment.
