Partnering With The Jed Foundation for the Risk Management Premium Credit

In this year’s Risk Management Premium Credit (RMPC) program, United Educators (UE) partnered with The Jed Foundation (JED) to help members promote emotional well-being and prevent substance misuse and suicide. To earn the premium credit, your institution may choose to sign an agreement to implement one of JED’s programs.

What Is JED?

JED is a non-profit organization that protects emotional health and prevents suicide for our nation’s teens and young adults. JED partners with high schools, colleges, and universities to help strengthen their capacity to support mental health, reduce substance misuse, and implement effective suicide-prevention programs and systems. JED has worked with nearly 450 colleges and universities and 90 high schools nationwide, reaching more than 5.5 million students.

JED offers three programs that improve institutions’ ability to support students’ mental health. Participating would benefit your institution’s efforts to support students’ mental health and can provide your institution with useful risk management tools.

JED Program Options

Higher Education

Two program options are available for higher education institutions:

High Schools

There is a cost involved for JED programs. Visit the pages linked above for information, including pricing, on each program. You can also contact for Higher Education or for High School. 

How to Participate

This activity will be available for the 2022-23 and 2023-24 RMPC programs (for UE members renewing between May 1, 2022 and April 30, 2023 and between May 1, 2023 and April 30, 2024).

To apply JED’s programs to your premium credit, we will ask your institution to upload a signed agreement with JED. That agreement commits your institution to implementing one of JED’s three programs. Because these are multi-year commitments, your institution doesn’t need to complete the chosen program to earn the premium credit.

To select one of the JED programs, go to your Intake Form, select Student Mental Health, and then select the option that refers to JED’s programs, which you can find on your RMPC Dashboard. Your institution must contact JED and work with it directly on implementation.
