What is the Ruderman Family Foundation?

The Ruderman Family Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to advocating and creating awareness for disability inclusion.

The All Inclusive podcast was created to address disability inclusion as the civil rights issue of our time.

In this podcast, Jay Ruderman, host of All Inclusive and president of the Ruderman Family Foundation, interviews an array of experts with the latest news, technology and advocacy on topics related to disability.

All Inclusive

Since its launch in Fall 2018, All Inclusive has released 9 episodes, discussing a variety of topics from disability in sports to the mental health crisis in Ivy League schools. In this article, we want to highlight two of the All Inclusive episodes.

1 - The Crisis in the Ivy League

The Crisis in the Ivy League

The most recent podcast, explores brand new research by the Ruderman Family Foundation about the mental health crisis in Ivy League American universities.

According to the American College Health Association, 40 percent of undergraduates have felt so depressed within the past twelve months that it was difficult for them to function, and 86% of college students that die by suicide never receive treatment for mental illness.

Dr. Miriam Heyman, Senior Program Officer at RFF joins Jay Ruderman to speak about this issue, which was studied in her recently released whitepaper. The whitepaper grades the Ivy League colleges based on their quality of treatment of students with mental illness. None of them earned a grade higher than D+.
