HMS and the Jed Campus Program


HMS and the Jed Campus Program

HMN has partnered with the Jed Campus Program. The Campus Program (CP) is designed to help colleges and universities promote emotional wellbeing and mental health programming, reduce substance abuse, and prevent suicide among their students. The CP is conducted over 4 years. During this time, campuses work to identify opportunities to enhance mental health and substance abuse prevention programming. School officials complete confidential, self-assessment surveys on their mental health promotion, substance abuse and suicide prevention efforts.

Through this partnership, campuses participate in HMS twice over the course of 4 years (in the first/second year and in the third/fourth year of the CP). These data allow schools to assess systems change (as measured by the CP) and changes in student attitudes/behaviors (as measured by HMS) over time. When implemented together, these initiatives yield a comprehensive approach to using research to enhance campus mental health programs and policies. The HMS participation fee is $3,000. This includes two administrations of HMS and all data reporting efforts described here. Please email us at healthyminds@umich.edu for more information.
