Half of Us is a campaign from MTVU and JED to start important conversations about emotional health and encourage students to take action to help themselves or their friends. The campaign’s name comes from research that shows, during any given semester, approximately half of all college students are dealing with stress, anxiety, or depression that interferes with their ability to get things done or maintain healthy relationships.
Since 2006, JED and MTVU have worked together to create video and online content that highlights the real stories and issues college students are facing, and encourages them to reach out to campus or community resources if they need help.
This resource center is designed to help campuses like yours use Half of Us content and related MTV films & shows to create screenings and campaigns for your campus community. We look forward to hearing your ideas and experiences on using this content in your emotional health, resiliency and substance abuse programming on campus.
