The Steve Fund, a nonprofit created to address the mental health needs of young people of color, and The Jed Foundation (JED), a nonprofit that exists to protect emotional health and prevent suicide for teens and young adults are pleased to announce the availability of a new resource that supports students of color— Equity in Mental Health Framework Toolkit.
The new Toolkit provides additional support in applying the recommendations in the EMH Framework that was launched just over a year ago. It includes implementation strategies to support campus-based efforts to reduce shame and prejudice around mental illness, increase responsiveness, improve campus climate, and provide system-wide opportunities to help all students thrive.
We encourage your participation in this effort to reach and support students of color, and to help ensure that everyone has access to mental health resources. We hope the EMH Framework and Toolkit will help guide you in this important work.
