JED Campus

JED Campus is a nationwide initiative of The Jed Foundation designed to help colleges and universities enhance emotional well-being and mental health promotion efforts, reduce substance abuse, and prevent suicide among students.

JED Campus and EWU

In Fall 2019, EWU entered into a strategic, four-year partnership with JED Campus. This partnership is designed to help EWU through a collaborative process that examines comprehensive systems, program and policy development with tailored support to build upon existing student mental health, substance abuse and suicide prevention efforts.


How does it work?

In the Fall of 2019, a leadership team comprised of staff, faculty and students from across the university formed and met monthly. This team completed a campus-wide assessment of EWU’s programs, systems and challenges. In addition, student data was gathered through the Healthy Minds Survey. Student survey data, student focus group sessions, and the campus assessment informed the development of a draft strategic plan for the campus.
