Among U.S. college students, the two leading causes of death are auto accidents and suicide, in that order. Dr. Vincent D' Andrea&md;a Stanford University psychiatrist who has organized suicide hotlines, peer counselors and dormitory advisers to prevent suicides&md;says 15 out of every 100,000 students do away with themselves each year. About one in 10 suicide attempts succeeds. Though 90% of all attempts are made by women aged 20-30, those who succeed are usually men.
