The 'trend' that is troubling the US

The 'trend' that is troubling the US

On Thursday, the CDC announced suicide rates in most states, including MI, have gone up 30 percent since 1999. Pennsylvania Mental Health Consumers' Association executive director Lynn Keltz says, mental health should be treated the same way as physical health.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has expressed concern on the high rate of suicide among young people globally as a result of depression.

Almost 45,000 people committed suicide in 2016, making it one of three leading causes of death on the rise in the United States, along with Alzheimer's disease and drug overdoses.

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the USA and is one of just three leading causes that are on the rise. The stigma attached to mental health services often prevents people from seeking help. AFSP creates a culture that's smart about mental health through education and community programs, develops suicide prevention through research and advocacy, and provides support for those affected by suicide.

She said reasons people commit suicide are limitless, and instead of doubting the seriousness of what pushes someone to suicide, people should instead open their hearts.

Fallout 76 Release Date Revealed
Bethesda didn't reveal much about the beta aside from it being used to help them work on Fallout 76's multiplayer component. Fallout Shelter was surprised released at E3 in 2015 on iOS, and was quickly followed up with an Android version.

Previous studies have suggested economic downturns and the nation's opioid crisis contributed to the rise in middle-aged suicides. Staley said those could help lower Utah's high suicide rate. Rates have risen steadily in most age and ethnic groups, even as rates of psychiatric treatment and diagnosis have also greatly increased. Although we don't personally know them, with celebrities we feel like we know them.

"How do we break the silence around helping individuals that are struggling?" She has started a foundation in memory of her father called Jerry's Walk and she now serves as president of the board at the Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation.

"There are people that think about suicide, and they think, 'Well, they (celebrities) were fearless enough to do it, '" she said.

"We need more people trained in suicide awareness", he said. Letting them hear themselves say it out loud could be enough.

If you or someone you know has suicidal thoughts call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255. All calls are confidential.
