The emerging crisis of college student suicide: Law and policy responses to serious forms of self-inflicted injury.


Lake, P.F., Tribbensee, N.E. , Stetson Law Review, (2002).
http://www.law.stetson.edu/lawrev/abstracts/PDF/32-1Lake.pdf

The authors recognize that universities are not in a position to place the general student population (or even large numbers of specific individuals) in custodial control sufficient to prevent suicide. A need to do so would undermine the very nature of the academy. Colleges cannot be bystanders, however, to this major social issue, which promises to become a major form of risk to manage in college communities. The college of the future will strive to create a reasonably safe learning environment supportive of individuals with mental-health issues and will be prepared to take reasonable steps to protect the physical safety of those and other individuals.
