working-with-laptop-4-328928-mAccording to the Suicide Prevention Resource Center, suicide is the second leading cause of death in college students. How can colleges help the ever-increasing number of students and the need for mental health counseling? Authors Omar Abdull Kareem and Khuan Wai Bing looked at one case of student suicide and how the university handled it in their article “Exploring Management Interventions in a Higher Education Institution for the Improvement of Student Well-being” from South Asian Journal of Business and Management Cases.

The abstract:

F1.mediumHigher education institutions worldwide are competing for students by providing unique learning and well-being services to students. However, campus services often cannot cope with increasing demand for counselling or other forms of well-being treatment with the increased number of students in their campuses. The case will explore the university management’s interventions towards a student who attempted suicide due to depression. Ways of identifying and monitoring students who may be at risk of depression, suicide, self-injury or injuring others, will be focused. This case further offers crucial points for providing awareness and the management of student well-being in university campuses.
