Title College student suicide: prevention and intervention
Date 2010
Description There is a lack of research on the literature concerning the policies and procedures higher education institutions and their employees utilize when responding to a student suicide attempt or suicide. Current research on college student suicide is limited for several reasons: (a) there are no federal, state, local, or institutional requirements for higher education institutions to report the number of attempts or suicides on campus; as a result, complete and accurate statistics on college student suicide are not available, (b) there are limited federal, state, local, or institutional directives that guide higher education protocols and procedures for students at risk, and (c) there are inadequate resources and information for evidenced-based practices and programs to prevent or intervene in the case of a suicide attempt or suicide. Consequently, higher education prevention and intervention strategies that specifically address the management and response to a student suicide attempt or suicide differ extensively from campus to campus.
