The Jed & Clinton Health Matters Campus Program is designed to help colleges and 

universities promote emotional wellbeing and mental health programming, reduce substance 

abuse, and prevent suicide among their students.

The Jed & Clinton Health Matters Campus Program is designed to help colleges and universities promote emotional wellbeing and mental health programming, reduce substance abuse, and prevent suicide among their students.

Connecticut College is among the first 55 schools to join The Campus Program, which is designed to help colleges and universities assess and enhance mental health, substance abuse, and suicide prevention programming.

Participating schools make a four-year commitment to work with The Campus Program to evaluate and identify opportunities to augment these activities on campus. The Campus Program provides schools with a framework for supporting student mental health, as well as assessment tools, feedback reports and ongoing technical assistance from The Campus Program team. 

Membership in The Campus Program demonstrates Connecticut College’s commitment to promoting emotional wellbeing and improving substance abuse and suicide prevention programming for all students. The Jed and Clinton Health Matters Campus Program grants a membership seal to all schools that participate in the program.
