JED Campus Initiative

About

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln partnered with the JED Campus program in 2018 to begin a four-year project to enhance student health and well-being efforts on campus. Through this program, Nebraska seeks to strengthen and build comprehensive systems, programs and policies to support student mental health, substance abuse and suicide prevention efforts.
