Family support can help reduce suicide risk in college students

A new study says that family support can help college students from harming themselves when they feel lonely and separated.

The research was done by the University of Michigan on 456 college students with ages from 18 to 35 years.

It showed that when lonely students had high family support, they had lesser depressive symptoms compared to students with lower family support.

The research suggests parents to look for and find early signs of depression risks such as social isolation.

Families can also take the help of counsellors to create more positive environments to prevent or reduce the risk of suicide in students during their difficult times.
