The Dark Side of Teens: Jed

The Dark Side of Teens: Jed
Working moms and stay-at-home moms go head to head in debating the best way to raise children.
Jed (right) was seemingly happy young man with many friends who took his own life when he was a sophomore in college.

"He always seemed to be happy, he seemed like he had everything going for him," says his best friend Ron.

"Now that I look back on it, I realize that he had all the signs of depression and I just didn't know. He stayed up late, he didn't go to class, he slept all day."

Ron created the Jed Foundation and the U-Life Line Network to help young adults who are considering suicide.

Ron (left) continues, "In retrospect I know that Jed had many of the warning signs of depression, but in college I didn't know what the warning signs of depression were.

"Every day you'd see someone on campus telling you how to have safe sex, but with suicide being the second leading cause of death among college students, you would assume that the university would do something to inform students about what the signs of depression are. We created to try to help students deal with all of the stresses of life," Ron responds.
