Don’t Be Afraid to Talk With Someone

Kate Spade

The suicide deaths of designer Kate Spade and globe-trotting chef and TV host Anthony Bourdain last week are tragic reminders of a troubling trend unfolding across the US.

Also valuable to the cause of suicide prevention was a USA Today story by columnist Kirsten Powers and an Instagram post by rock star Dave Navarro, who both talked about how they had suicidal thoughts - Navarro wrote he had the means of exit plotted out - but got help and the moment passed, Draper said. "So people might say, 'If their life is so bad, and they had everything, what hope is there for someone like me?'" During Governor Bill Haslam's administration, he and his team dedicated funding to the Office of the Deputy Medical Examiner to enable Medical Examiners in Tennessee to utilize updated reporting technologies as well as receive more information of suicide and training, leading to better reporting.

According to a CDC study, NY saw a 30 percent increase in its suicide rate from 1999 to 2016 and a New Yorker takes their own life every five hours. We speak with a local reporter who met Spade and remembers her as being very much Kansas Citian.

Schuchat tells NYTimes.com, "Our data show that suicide is more than a mental health issue. Those without a known mental health condition suffered more from relationship problems and other life stressors such as criminal/legal matters, eviction/loss of home, and recent or impending crises".

One thing is for certain: eliminating the stigma behind mental health and maintaining an open dialogue and connecting with others can help prevent these incidents.

Reidenberg sees the connection as even more absolute. If a fellow Solider is concerned about a peer, he or she must "ask" their peer if they are suicidal by specifically asking "are you going to commit suicide?"

But in a newly released interview, Haddish told everyone to calm down, and she understands why her co-star was so annoyed. I used to visit my friend Anna there, and it got to a point where I was calling the police officers by name.

"If a suicide is newsworthy, we want to give readers the key facts and not leave them in the dark", Corbett said. In response, Navarro shared a message, urging those in doubt to contact the National Suicide Prevention LifeLine.

If you believe your loved one or friend is at risk of suicide, do not leave him or her alone. And in terms of ethnic breakdown, CDC research shows that American Indians have the highest rate of suicides per 100,000 people, followed by whites.

A hike in the United States' suicide rates has thrown the spot light on the need for further effective treatments for vital depression, including researchers stating that it's a tricky development space that has widely been departed from the giant pharmaceutical companies.

"Be available", he says.

"You can be the difference in getting them the help they need", the organization says.

As always, if you or someone you know needs help, please reach out.
