How to have tough conversations about mental health

Celebrity suicides highlight troubling trend in midlife

"There are many different circumstances and factors that contribute to suicide". Unfortunately, it's not just Pennsylvania that saw an increase of deaths from suicide, nearly every other state recorded an increase.

Suicide prevention largely focuses on addressing mental health treatment, the CDC found, suggesting that a wider variety of preventive measures could be taken.

Gordon said doctors need to ask patients at every opportunity about their mental health and evaluate their risk for suicide.

Despite an increased awareness and more help available than ever before, there is still a stigma attached to reaching out for help.

For the second time this week a celebrity has died from suicide. Suicide rates inched up in almost every us state from 1999 through 2016, according to a government report released Thursday.

The Kansas suicide rate is growing much faster than the national average. "Suicide is one of the top 10 causes of death in the United States right now, and it's one of three causes that is actually increasing recently, so we do consider it a public health problem-and something that is all around us".

The increasing suicide rates are the result of a number of factors.

Jones says it's unfortunate the conversation starts after the fact when it should happen before someone takes their own life.

According to another report by the CDC, 10 out of 100,000 people died from suicide in 2005.

The findings were released days after the deaths of famed designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain brought the issue of suicide to the fore.

"The most important thing for people who have been ill enough for this to have been a risk is that they keep asking for help".

The report showed a fourfold difference in state suicide rates, ranging from 6.9 per 100,000 residents per year in Washington DC to 29.2 in Montana.

Extensively reported cases can make suicide seem to be more of "a viable option" if rich, famous people "who seem like they have it all" made that decision, said Theresa Buhse, associate executive director of the Long Island Crisis Center in Bellmore.

"He taught all of us how to be an American overseas, how to travel, explore, how to experience the world", said Cullen.

Over the past week social media and the news have been filled with stories and articles encouraging people to seek help if they're in emotional distress.
