Helping colleges self-assess and enhance mental health support systems

The Jed Foundation & Suicide Prevention Resource Center:Model for Comprehensive Mental Health Promotion and Suicide Prevention

A community-based approach to the unique campus environment that is adapted from the US Air Force Suicide Prevention Program and based upon best practices and research on risk and protective factors for suicide

To learn more about the TJF/SPRC model, go to:

  • Based upon the Comprehensive Approach to Mental Health Promotion and Suicide

  • Prevention on College & University Campuses, a joint project of TJF and SPRC

  • Developed with input from leading experts

  • John Sexton and Charlie Rose

  • NASPA pilot-200 schools

  • Challenges of program - general enough and specific enough

  • Feedback from CC directors, Student Affairs leaders, Mental Health and suicide experts

Why participate in jedcampus
Why participate in componentsJedCampus?

  • Significant learning associated with completing questionnaire

  • Feedback about areas of strength and opportunities to enhance programming

  • Survey process and feedback inform a strategic plan for mental health promotion

  • Enables a process of continual assessment and improvement

  • Demonstrates commitment to continual improvement in mental health programming

  • JedCampuses will be publicly recognized for commitment to student emotional wellbeing

Jedcampus structure
JedCampus components: Structure

  • 80 question online survey

  • Filled out by CC director and Student affairs leader

  • Covers the elements of the “Model” by section

  • $650 fee for the program to help defray costs

Jedcampus measurement
JedCampus: Measurement components

  • The number of schools (and students) that participate

  • The number of schools (and students) that receive a JedCampus seal

  • The number of schools that do not receive the JedCampus seal, implement improvements and receive it at a future date

  • A nationally projectable dataset that describes mental health programming among colleges will be maintained. Over time, program success will be measured by improvements in campus mental health support systems on both an individual school, regional and national basis.

  • The Jed Foundation is collaborating with researchers at University of MI, University of MD and Columbia University to develop an evaluation program for JedCampus, The Model and its elements that can supplement existing evidence supporting such mental health programming on campus

Jedcampus measurement1
JedCampus components: Measurement

  • While each school’s info will be available only to TJF and the school, we hope to develop a research program using data from these surveys and info on suicides and retention rates

  • Explore impact of programs on rates of suicide, suicide attempts and student retention/graduation (Arria and Eisenberg)

  • Note that positive correlations re retention and programming can provide a powerful argument for robust programming (in additions to the obvious reasons)

  • Do campus professionals views agree with student perceptions?

  • Elements of the “Model” and utility for other types of communities????
