New Data on the Nature of Suicidal Crises in College Students: Shifting the Paradigm (2009)

Open Website

This article presents data on the nature of suicidal crises in college students. Data collected from over 26,000 undergraduate and graduate students at 70 colleges and universities via an anonymous web-based survey provided insight into the full spectrum of suicidal thought, intent, and action among college students. The authors discuss implications of these data and outline a problem-focused paradigm for conceptualizing the problem of college student suicidality and for guiding institutional policies and interventions at multiple points along the continuum of suicidal thoughts and behaviors.
