This comprehensive approach is drawn primarily from the overall strategic direction of the United States Air Force (USAF) Suicide Prevention Program, a population-based strategy to reduce risk factors and enhance protective factors for suicide (Knox et al., 2003). The TJF/SPRC approach is also based on what is known about how to decrease risk factors and increase protective factors for mental health and suicide among adolescents, college students, and the general population; an understanding of the student mental health problems that campuses face; and existing best practices. Campus planners are cautioned to ensure that adequate institutional capacity exists and that linkages to community services are in place before they create programs that will significantly increase the number of students seeking services.
