Mental Health Resource Center

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

Welcome to 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.

Emotional Well-being

Simply put, overall well-being is having a healthy body and a healthy emotional state of mind. A healthy lifestyle can enhance mental health, bring a sense of well-being and help keep your body strong. By adopting relatively simple habits — sleeping well, staying active, eating healthy foods, and taking steps to manage stress — you can help yourself feel better and improve your state of mind.
