Mandated Psychological Assessments for Suicide Risk in a College Population: A Pilot Study
Kirchner, Grace L.; Marshall, Donn; Poyner, Sunney R.
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v31 n3 p192-202 2017
This study was conducted to evaluate the impact of a protocol mandating psychological assessment of college students exhibiting specific signs of suicide risk and/or nonsuicidal self-harm. Thirty-seven current and former students who had been documented as at risk completed a structured interview in person or by phone. Outcomes suggest this protocol identifies students at risk for suicide, with 27% having made an attempt at some point in their lives and 50% having been suicidal at the time the report was written. The majority of participants endorsed the value of this intervention.
