Jessica McDevitt

School: Pace University
Major: Arts & Entertainment Management, Psychology (minor)
Class level: Senior

Outside of school, I intern at the Recording Academy/GRAMMYs as well as AEG/Bowery Presents. As graduation is around the corner, I hope to pursue a career in the music industry. I also volunteer with a local mental health organization called Sound Mind, where I serve as the Partnerships Manager. I’m excited to spend my last semester working with JED and my fellow SAC members.

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.
