Porter, Shirley
College Quarterly, v13 n3 Sum 2010
This study focused on Suicide Risk Assessment (SRA) protocols completed by counsellors for 153 students who presented with suicidal ideation at a community college counselling centre during a five year period. This study sought to: determine the number of students presenting with suicidal ideation annually; identify the types of interventions used by counsellors; and assess the academic progress and retention rates of students who continued in their programs following intervention. Among the 122 individuals who continued in their studies, 73.8% met the criteria for retention and 42.1% achieved a GPA (Grade Point Average) of 3.0 or above. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)
