NYU & student suicides: treat the symptom, not the problem.

From an article in the NY Daily News:

New York University is cutting off balcony access in two high-rise dorms in a bid to prevent student suicides, school officials said yesterday.

At least four NYU students have jumped to their deaths since 2003, though none from dorm balconies.

Unfortunately, acknowledging and treating the actual problem is often significantly more difficult than slapping a band-aid on a symptom that may or may not be related.
