The Jed Foundation
The Jed Foundation is the nation's leading organization working to prevent suicide and promote mental health among college students. The organization is guided by an expert board of mental health professionals to reduce the suicide rate among college students by focusing on the underlying causes of suicide and producing effective prevention, awareness and intervention programs.
The Jed Foundation's major initiatives are rooted in the widely-distributed "Prescription for Prevention" model, developed in collaboration with the Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC), that defines a comprehensive suicide prevention and mental health promotion framework for colleges and universities. Our programs target the full-range of audiences that can influence college mental health including students, campuses, politicians, mental health professionals, the public health community and parents.
