Thanks to Bob Yufit for his input!

Recently, both The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times have written articles on the significant rise in college suicides throughout the United States. Members living in New York City have certainly been aware of this trend, as NYU has suffered several over the past year. Hopefully, this troubling trend is an area in which some of our members will find interest and explore any research or training opportunities available.
