Educational Outreach Enhances Prevention
Tuesday's editorial drew needed attention to the impact of student depression and suicide on the health of our campus community ("Suicide Prevention Efforts Fall Short of Need," July 9).

The editorial raised two important issues: the relevance of campus-based suicide statistics for students, and the commitment of University Health Services to provide outreach and prevention in this area. I would like to address both these issues and offer additional information that will contribute to the campus' understanding of suicide and prevention efforts.

Letters to the Editor: Drug Laws Affecting Education Stir Controversy
