Don’t Be Afraid to Talk With Someone

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report 2018

Although suicide is one of the top four causes of death among people in the age groups between 10 and 44, the numbers of suicide deaths are higher in the age groups in the 45 to 65+ range, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

In the past, suicide touched my life as well. About half of those who died by suicide had no known mental health condition, but it's likelly that many simply hadn't seen a doctor, or the right doctor anyway. It is a myth that asking about suicide increases the risk of suicide.

Nationally, suicide rates increased in almost every state from 1999 to 2016. Reporting that suicide rates have risen dramatically across most of the country in the past three decades.

"We're losing 125 Americans a day to suicide".

Research from the CDC shows there's a disproportionate rate of men committing suicide compared with women; with 32.8 per every 100,000 men 65 and older versus 5.2 per every 100,000 women 65 and over. It is how individuals choose to cope that changes the outcome.From what we know of Spade's particular story, and many like it, there are warning signs - signs that are evident in hindsight but at the time can seem fleeting. Information is available in many places, including at www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org.

"You can be the difference in getting them the help they need", the organization says. As part of the discussion, some experts have called for a more medicalized approach toward treating anxiety and depression to help increase the chances of identifying a problem earlier before it becomes severe.

"There are a number of very severe mental illnesses associated with suicide as the ultimate, disgusting complication of the illness", she said. "Rather than understanding their mental health, they get medication to treat the symptoms". But other factors - strained relationships, work or finance stressors, poor physical health, recent or impending crises - are important to recognize as well. Lack of support for people with mental disorders, coupled with a fear of stigma, prevent many from accessing the treatment they need to live healthy, productive lives.
