Did you know 75% of all mental health conditions begin by age 24? That’s why the college years are so critical for understanding and talking about mental health, and why NAMI partnered with the Jed Foundation to develop the Mental Health College Guide.

Going to college is a big step, and big steps come with excitement, the unknown, and, usually, a healthy amount of stress. That’s not only ok, but it’s to be expected. And it’s the reason this guide was designed by—and for—college students.

The guide covers topics from self-care to getting mental health care support, to legal rights and self-advocacy. Check it out here.
