Abstract

This study analyzes a randomly selected, stratified national sample of 196 four-year college and university counseling center websites (CCWs) to assess the quality of available information about young adult suicide. Several variables are considered in a content analysis: the accessibility of suicide help and prevention information; the prominence of suicide information resources; the nature of the available content, including associations with gender and mental disorders. This research provides suggestions for improving the content and ease of access of suicide information across CCWs.
