Results show that students «were less likely to be born in Canada and to have a history of substance abuse and more likely to have family/social support.» (p. 5) «An association between maternal depression and suicidal behavior among college students has been reported. In our study, maternal depression was not different between students and nonstudents, although the possibility of a trend toward a higher proportion in students could not be excluded. [S]tudents were less likely to have a history of substance abuse and more likely to have family/social support than nonstudents. A lower risk of drug use disorder and nicotine dependence among college students compared to peers not attending college has been reported. Students with no family/social support were found to be more likely to drop out of school and not enter college in some studies. In addition, emotional, informational, and tangible social support was associated with less suicidal thoughts and behaviors among college students, while negative social exchanges were associated with increased suicidal thoughts and behaviors.» (p. 6)
