PROTECTING THE
  POTENTIAL OF
   OUR STUDENTS
                               The Jed Foundation is the nation’s leading organization working to reduce emotional
                               distress and prevent suicide among college students. As families and communities,
                               we invest significant time, energy and resources to help young people get a college
                               education because we know it is vital to their future and ours. Yet these investments
                               frequently fail due to preventable mental health issues that are misunderstood or
                               overlooked. Emotional problems are a leading impediment to success in college. Even
                               more tragic, suicide is the second leading cause of death among college students.
                               Through your support, The Jed Foundation is protecting the emotional health of young
                               people across the country by changing the way students and parents think about
                               mental health, paving the way for more young people to get treatment if needed and
                               helping colleges create safer, healthier campus communities. The organization’s
                               programs include: the Peabody Award-winning Half of Us Campaign with mtvU that
                               reaches over 9 million students; ULifeline, an online resource that provides
                               campus-specific information and resources for over 1,400 colleges and features a
