Veterans and Athletes Coping with Mental Health Challenges

NEW YORK, March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- March is a time when college basketball and the annual spring break sojourn place college students in the national spotlight, with millions rallying to celebrate the excitement and fun of the month. Meanwhile, midterms, looming graduation, spring break stressors and the 5th anniversary of the Iraq war -- which personally affects a significant percentage of the college audience -- weigh heavy on students' minds.

mtvU, MTV's Emmy-winning college network, and The Jed Foundation, the leading nonprofit focused on preventing suicide and reducing emotional distress among college students, today launched a month of special programming that addresses these seasonal stressors -- and continues to attack the very real stigma that's made suicide the second leading cause of death for college students. A component of the Emmy-nominated "Half of Us" campaign, the programming will focus on the toll stress and other emotional issues are having on the national college audience, pointing students to anonymous online resources and where to get help on-campus. Select elements include:

-- Billy Corgan "Half of Us" special -- In a feature directed by acclaimed

filmmaker Joel Schumacher, The Smashing Pumpkins' lead singer opens up

about how success and instant fame unleashed the permanent scars of

childhood abuse, which he was raised to ignore. He also extols how

accepting personal limitations and utilizing resources can help college

students cope with depression and suicidal tendencies. Debuting today

on mtvU and available online at http:/
