ADVISORY: THE JED FOUNDATION AND LOVE IS LOUDER ARE NOT
AFFILIATED WITH THE PAID SUBSCRIPTION SITE META LIFE
 

There are some communications online from YouTubers Sam & Colby that could imply there is a connection between The Jed Foundation and their paid subscription platform – Meta Life. We would like to clarify that JED has no partnership with Meta Life and is not an advisor on their content or in the management of their online community. 

Meta Life is described by their team as providing life skills, trainings, advice on mental health issues and a supportive community. While JED’s Love is Louder project was listed as a free resource for members on the platform’s “external resources” page’ at launch, our organization has since asked to be removed from the site entirely as we have serious concerns about whether all advice on the site is evidence-based and properly vetted. We are also extremely concerned about whether the community board is a safe environment, especially for struggling young people who might be dealing with self-injury, high levels of anxiety or thoughts of suicide.
 
A member of our team has specifically articulated our safety and wellness concerns and asked that Meta Life resolve these issues immediately. We have not been notified as to whether those changes have been made and would strongly discourage any parent from allowing teenagers who may be struggling to access Meta Life without first doing a personal review of the platform’s current offerings and the community board. 
 
If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at info@loveislouder.com.
