What is the focus of The Jed Foundation in terms of age group and issues?


The Jed Foundation is a non-profit organization that focuses on protecting the emotional health of teens and young adults. Their mission is to implement suicide prevention programs and systems in partnership with high schools and colleges. These programs, which reach millions of young people every year, aim to equip them with life skills and build resiliency. Research shows that these initiatives can encourage help-seeking and help-giving behaviors, supporting overall well-being in this age group. Key programs that your funds will support include mental health programming for 9,000 individuals through partnerships with educational institutions, partnerships with local communities to reduce the stigma of mental health, and digital outreach initiatives to engage teens and young adults. More than 2 million teens and their families have used JED’s 'Set to Go' program to prepare emotionally for the transition to college and adult life.
