This study examined the level of knowledge of college undergraduates in regard to common misconceptions about suicidal behavior. Half of the sample was able to recognize 13 of the 16 myths as false. The author concludes that educational programs aimed at increasing knowledge of suicide have been somewhat successful (at least in the university assessed), but more research must be conducted to unequivocally determine the value of these programs.
