Dig Deep: Volleyball Tournament


An event hosted by Johns Hopkins Women’s Volleyball Team, Dig Deep, rallies participants to battle it out on the volleyball court to raise money and awareness for JED.

Dig Deep 2017:

15 teams and 150 students gathered at the tournament to learn more about JED’s mission and openly discuss issues like suicide and mental health.

To publicize the event, the team posted on social media often tagging @johnshopikins and using the hashtag they created, #hopkinsdigdeep. They reached out to other groups on campus for support and many of the University’s graduate schools helped spread the word via their social media handles and email list outreach.

The team raised $1,500 and was so pleased with the turnout that they are planning to make the tournament an annual event in support of JED.

We are so grateful to these incredible women!

The World Health Organization defines “mental health” “as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.” In using this definition, S2i recognizes that some mental health challenges reflect brain diseases that, like physical diseases, require appropriate stigma-free and patient-centered care and include both mental health and substance use disorders. Other mental health challenges stem from social conditions and marginalization and require different forms of interventions.
