JED is a national nonprofit that exists to protect emotional health and prevent suicide for our nation’s teens and young adults. We’re partnering with high schools and colleges to strengthen their mental health, substance abuse and suicide prevention programs and systems. We’re equipping teens and young adults with the skills and knowledge to help themselves and each other. We’re encouraging community awareness, understanding and action for young adult mental health.
All of our storytellers have been trained by The Moth , an acclaimed non-profit dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling, to harness the power of storytelling and to promote JED's mission to protect mental health and reduce suicide among teens and young adults.
