Suicide Rate at the University of Washington Increased

How can loved ones help prevent suicide?

Recently, I wrote about a series of suicides at a prestigious South Korean university. Just this week, I read that there was an increase in the suicide rate at the University of Washington. The article I read attributed the increase in the suicide rate to stress about the economy for students wondering what they will do once they graduate and to poor mental health facilities at the university.
