Expert resources to help teens and young adults navigate life’s challenges

JED’s Mental Health Resource Center for Young Adult Emotional Health and Well-being

JED’s Mental Health Resource Center provides essential information about common emotional health issues, and shows how young people can overcome challenges and make a successful transition to young adulthood and beyond.

Young adulthood can be a time of significant change and intense challenges. We see the effects every day: a death from binge drinking, an overdose, a suicide. These tragedies are complex and their warning signs often subtle. With the right support and safety nets, the high school and college years can be safer and more manageable.
