Mental health issues affect millions of people. Young people are especially at risk, with half of college students reporting that they have been stressed to a point where they couldn’t function during the past year. Through Half of Us, mtvU and The Jed Foundation aim to raise awareness about mental health issues and connect students to the appropriate resources to get help.
