We are looking for students to join our JED Campus Advisor for student focus groups. The JED Campus program is designed to identify opportunities to enhance emotional health and substance abuse and suicide prevention efforts on campus in order to ensure that schools have the strongest possible mental health safety nets. We will be discussing what mental health looks like on campus and how JED can support our campus community. Students from all schools are encouraged to participate.
We want to hear what’s going well and what can be improved around mental health on campus. Following this focus group, JED will be sharing your testimonials and feedback with decision-makers on campus. Your voice matters and will help both JED and your campus community co-create positive, systemic changes.
Don’t miss this opportunity to make an impact on your campus! Research demonstrates that student involvement increases awareness and usage of campus health services, generates new solutions and favorable long-term results, and increases student academic performance and retention.
Please note: the conversations during these focus groups will be anonymous but not confidential. We hope you can join us for what will be a collaborative and supportive conversation.
