Overview: This is the first book on suicide in higher education settings that has taken steps to equip readers with practical strategies for action. This book covers issues related to suicide risk, prevention and postvention in Further and Higher Education communities. Compiled by 37 experts, it is an authoritative guide to an issue that is causing increasingly large concern for FE and HE institutions and covers multiple evidence-backed approaches with a pragmatic focus. It is the first that specifically deals with student suicide in FE Colleges and universities, encouraging a holistic, institutional response. Chapters are split into three sections, beginning with understanding and preventing student suicide among students, followed by responses to risk, including a model for student prevention in HE settings. The book concludes with the response to student death by suicide with advice on postvention, and how to support bereaved family, staff, and students.

The entire book is a practical guide for anyone working in further and higher education settings, working in the prevention or response to suicidal behaviours. Of special mention, Carmen Betterridge and Alys Cole-King co-authored Chapter 16: Suicide Safety Planning with Students.
