What is JED Campus?
JED Campus is a nationwide initiative of The Jed Foundation designed to empower schools with a framework and customized support to enhance student well-being and substance abuse and suicide prevention efforts. As a member of JED Campus, Goucher College is demonstrating its commitment to the emotional well-being of our students.
How does the program work?
Goucher College has been collaborating with clinicians and staff from the JED Campus team to identify opportunities to enhance emotional health and substance abuse and suicide prevent efforts on campus in order to ensure that we have a strong mental health safety nets in place.
What is the JED Campus Seal?
The JED Campus seal is given to member schools who begin to implement their strategic plan. This recognition of a school’s dedication to supporting the emotional well-being of its students will remain valid for the 4-year duration of the program.
How is JED Campus different?
Goucher College benefits from the process of completing the JED Campus self-assessment, the feedback provided in these reports and the ability to learn and network with other JED Campus schools through the learning community. Participation in the program provide us us the opportunity to explore new ideas for enhancing the great work in progress and find innovative ways to support the emotion well-being of our students. We believe that the implementation of a campus-wide approach to mental health promotion will lead to safer, healthier students, and possibly greater student retention.
