Our thanks to Jeff for this – a piece with a photograph of a distressed young woman. A better headline would have been:
More than a quarter of students ‘have mental health problems’
From the article:
In May, statistics published by the ONS showed student suicides had risen to their highest level since numbers were first recorded in 2007.
These figures – for 2014 – showed there were 130 suicides in England and Wales among full-time students aged 18 or above. Of those, 97 deaths were for male students and 33 were females.
In typical BBC fashion, no comment is made of this gender differential. Another alternative headline would have been:
Three-quarters of students who commit suicide are male.
