Nonprofit working to support the emotional health of teens and young adults.
The Jed Foundation was founded in 2000 by Phil and Donna Satow after they lost their 20-year-old son, Jed, to suicide. We have been working ever since to make mental health a priority for colleges, college students and their families.
As the nation’s leading organization working to promote emotional health and prevent suicide among college and university students, The Jed Foundation continues to change the way students and parents think about mental health, paving the way for more young people to get the support they need, and helping colleges create safer, healthier campus communities.
The Jed Foundation's mission is to promote emotional health and prevent suicide among college and university students.
