Leah Finch

Full Bio

Leah Finch is a licensed clinical mental health counselor with experience in college counseling, adjunct teaching, and career services. While working in a college counseling center, she saw how counseling services alone are not enough to support student mental health - that it must be a collective, campus-wide effort. This led her to join The Jed Foundation in 2020, where she is now a Senior Campus Advisor. In her role at JED, she partners with colleges and universities across the country to implement a comprehensive strategic planning process that promotes college student mental and emotional well-being, reduces substance misuse, and prevents suicide.
