September's Charity Partner – The Jed Foundation

Every month at Casely, we like to give a special shout-out to a charity or organization that absolutely deserves it. For September, our shoutout is going to The Jed Foundation, an incredible charity working to improve the mental health of youth across the nation. 

Let's walk you through everything you need to know about The Jed Foundation and how you can get involved with their incredible work!

The Story Behind The Jed Foundation

This extraordinary organization first started in 1998, when the founders, Phil and Donna Satow, tragically lost their son, Jed, to suicide while he was attending college. Colleges and schools had no formal procedure or model aimed at preventing campus suicide. Phil and Donna Satow were moved to change this, and that's how The Jed Foundation came to be.

Today, the Jed Foundation is the nation's leading organization dedicated to young adult mental health. Their work changes lives every single day, and they couldn't be more deserving of our September shoutout. 

How The Jed Foundation Makes a Difference

The Jed Foundation is a nonprofit with the aim to protect and improve the emotional and mental health of youths, in addition to preventing suicide attempts by teens and young adults. They do this by providing them with the skills youth need to navigate the modern world, including the pressures from social media, education, and their peers. 

The Jed Foundation instills resiliency skills in youth across the nation and promotes social connectedness and seeking help when needed. A key component of their mission is making it clear to teens and young adults that it's not only okay to ask for help when you need it, but that it's essential, and there's no shame. 

The organization works with various high schools, colleges, and universities to reach young people, introducing key programs and policies that actively champion mental health and well-being. The Jed Foundation understands that simply talking about it isn't enough; we all have to be proactive in supporting those struggling with their mental health. This approach makes it easier for youth to get the help they need or encourage their friends to seek help too. 

Here's How You Can Get Involved

One of the best ways to show your support for The Jed Foundation is through donations, which you can do via the official website. Of course, if you’re unable to donate, spreading the word about this vital nonprofit across your social media and in your own classroom or workplace is also a fantastic way to help.
