Don’t Be Afraid to Talk With Someone

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

Dr. Schuchat and Deborah Stone, the lead author of the CDC analysis, have identified effective strategies critical to preventing suicide, which include teaching coping and problem-solving skills to those at risk, establishing more social "connectedness", and safe storage of pills and guns. Nationally, the average suicide rate is 12.93 per 100,000, and suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States, with almost 45,000 people taking their own lives each year. Moreover, 54 percent of people who died by suicide did not have a known mental health condition, according to the report.

Risk also increases with today's increased media coverage of high-profile suicides, he says, noting, "It's not about media covering it, but how they're covering it - if it's sensational, graphic, detailed, repeated frequently, glorified, romanticized, has no balance, and has messages about the specific method".

Men's suicide rates are still higher than women's overall, however, and there's been a troublingly steep increase in suicides of men from age 45 to 64 as well.

Dan Carter: England should stick with Eddie Jones' plan
A bloke said something, so I asked him where I can get a nice bottle of Pinotage and we can have a chat. When asked exactly what he had said, the England coach replied: "That's not for me to share with you".


With this rise in suicides, many are asking "What can I do to help someone who may be suicidal?"

"Because people so rarely talk about suicide, the days on which we talk about nearly nothing else hit especially hard". The male suicide rate, meantime, rose 21 percent.

Many of us know someone close to us who has committed or attempted suicide. While mental illness is not a transmittable disease, there are many studies suggesting suicide can, in a way, be contagious.

N.H. seeks solutions for rising suicide rate. "All of those things where people can talk openly so they can start getting help". 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. "Rather than understanding their mental health, they get medication to treat the symptoms". Reasons for the spike, according to the report, range from problems with relationships and substance abuse to a physical health problem or "crisis" of some kind - issues that can affect anyone. It's easy to point to technology and the changes it brings to how we handle our everyday lives; it's also easy to say that the nation has lost its way, with no clear moral compass. He has survived several suicide attempts and experienced lifelong depression before receiving treatment as an adult that helped alleviate his illness.

"When I mention people actually talking about harming themselves".

Drugs and guns are two areas in which Zinzow and Thompson are not now working, but they see a desperate need for research to understand their roles in suicide.
