Don’t Be Afraid to Talk With Someone

Both were successful, and both died last week after committing suicide.

Kansas ranked 19th overall in the number of suicides, but had the fifth highest rate of increase in suicides, following North Dakota, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Utah.

Zinzow is working with colleagues in psychology and civil engineering on a study of viral social media challenges in the United States and India and how they are connected to adolescents' participation in self-harming and suicidal behavior.

Suicide is now the second leading cause of death for all Americans from 10 to 34 years old. But it must be discussed with a manager whether to report any contents, to make sure they don't idealize suicide or indirectly encourage others.

And the overwhelming influence of a celebrity or high-profile suicide is far from a new discovery.

After two celebrities have taken their own lives in the past week, suicide has been a topic of conversation across the world.

The outbreak prompted the novel to be banned in several European locations.

The Netflix show "13 Reasons Why" revolves around a teen suicide. "Calls jumped 25% in the two days after her death, compared with the same period the previous week".

Following its release, there was a noted increase in Google searches pertaining to suicide, according to a study published in October.

The CDC made a decision to take a comprehensive look at this major public health issue, examining data on suicides from 1999 to 2016. It's a fact unfortunately proven not only by the deaths of the highly successful Spade, who was 55, and Bourdain, who was 61, but also by the jarring statistics of a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, released on Friday: that suicide rates are up 25 percent nationally, that they rose steadily in almost every state between 1999 and 2016, and that, in 2016, there were more than twice as many suicides as homicides.

"These findings are disturbing".

More than half of suicides in 2015 in a subgroup of 27 states were among people with no known mental health condition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found. Suicide is rarely caused by any single factor, health officials said, but information from coroners' reports suggest numerous deaths followed relationship problems, substance use and financial crises.

While prevention efforts mainly focus on identifying and providing treatment for people with mental illness, experts say suicide is rarely caused by a single factor.

Each year, about 4,000 people in this country die of suicide, according to the Canadian Mental Health Association.

For someone contemplating suicide, publishing details about the way someone killed themselves can be a triggering mechanism, said Doreen Marshall, vice president of programs at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

"It is a double-edged sword", said John Draper, executive director of the suicide prevention hotline. "All of those things where people can talk openly so they can start getting help". "It's important to take care of yourself when you are supporting someone through a hard time, as this may stir up hard emotions".

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