Young adulthood should be a time of growth, learning and exploration. A time to start building a life of one’s own, and to feel excitement about the future. But for many of our nation’s 40 million high school and college students, transitioning into adulthood can be a time of significant change and intense challenges.
We see the effects in the headlines every day: a death from binge drinking, an overdose, a suicide. These tragedies are complex and their warning signs often subtle. But with the right support and safety nets, they can be prevented. That’s why JED exists.
With your support this #GivingTuesday, JED is reducing the risks of substance abuse, self-harm and suicide so that more of our nation’s students grow into thriving adults.
