Suicide is the second leading cause of death among college students, behind alcohol and drug overdoses. Twenty-four Virginia college students died from suicide in 2012, according to the Virginia Violent Death Reporting System.
Findings from the annual Commonwealth Poll conducted by the L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs show nearly 80 percent of Virginians think better mental health treatment and services would help prevent gun violence. More than 50 percent said there is not enough funding for these services.
