Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Many writers agree that the rate of suicide among college students is higher than that of non-students of similar age and of the general population (Bernard and Bernard, 1982). Bonner and Rich (1987) stated that the suicide rate is about 50% higher for college students than for the general population. They also found that the suicide rate among students is higher than among non-students of the same age.
