Require coroners to record and publish deaths by suicide at universities
Coroners should record the numbers of students who die by suicide at different universities.
A large majority of universities do not record the number of student deaths by suicide despite the worsening student mental health crisis exacerbated by COVID-19. This lack of information is incredibly alarming. The official recording by coroners of students who die by suicide would be a start to understanding and addressing the massive problem of student mental health.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
