As part of a collaborative initiative between The Jed Foundation and The Steve Fund (two organizations focused on identifying and addressing the mental health needs of college students), campus leaders are invited to share information regarding innovative and effective campus-based programs. Specifically, we are interested in learning about programs that provide mental health support, education, and other services that address the unique challenges faced by college students of color. The ultimate goal is to identify a set of comprehensive guidelines and recommended practices to provide to college decision-makers, administrators, professionals, students and families, as well as highlight outstanding programs.

To participate, email the McLean College Mental Health National Survey Team (contact: jcattie@mclean.harvard.edu) to receive a copy of the survey, which takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.

Sincerely,

The Jed Foundation/Steve Fund National Survey Team
