About This Resource

Student suicide remains a significant issue on college campuses and in United Educators' (UE) claims. Suicide is among the leading causes of death for college students, and 8 percent of full-time college students had suicidal thoughts or seriously considered suicide, according to national studies. UE's review of 223 claims related to student mental health showed that suicide-related claims were among the most frequent and costliest. They accounted for nearly 70 percent of the UE study's claims and 43 percent of the losses.

This report focuses on key data points and lessons from the suicide-related claims. Use them to help your institution prevent and respond to this risk.
