An estimated 15 percent of students suffer from depression and other mental disorders that put them at risk for suicide. Each year, 10 percent of students report that they’ve seriously considered suicide. Those who need help the most are often the least likely to request available services. Research shows that many troubled students have beliefs and attitudes that pose significant barriers to treatment. Each year, surveys show that less than 20 percent of college students who die by suicide were past or current clients of the campus counseling center.
