JED Campus is an initiative of JED designed to guide schools through a collaborative process of comprehensive systems, program and policy development with customized support to build upon existing student mental health, substance abuse and suicide prevention efforts. JED Campuses embark on a four-year strategic partnership with JED that not only assesses and enhances the work that is already being done, but helps to create positive, systemic change in the campus community.
JED Campus uses proprietary assessments to understand each school’s programs, systems and challenges. After completing the initial assessment, a JED Campus receives feedback and recommendations based on their responses and informed by student data gathered on their campus by the Healthy Minds Study. Our JED Campus team then works with the school to develop a strategic plan for implementation over their four years in the program. While executing the strategic plan, JED Campuses are provided with ongoing support and technical assistance from a dedicated JED Campus Advisor. JED Campuses also have the opportunity to share information and resources with other schools in the program through our Learning Community, which includes webinars, newsletters, and online resource center, and a discussion forum.
