How to get help for someone who might be suicidal

CDC: Suicide rates on the rise in almost every state | TheHill

She and her colleagues collected data on suicides from every state.

"Any type of graphic reporting about suicide, even things that are spread on social media, can really influence people who are now struggling with thoughts about ending their life", Jennifer Sikora told KDKA's Jon Delano on Friday.

The report also found that about half of the Americans who died by suicide had not been diagnosed with a mental health condition at the time of their death.

Mental Health experts say the reality is the pain doesn't go away, it's only transferred to the families the victims leave behind. "I tell people, 'You may have prevented a suicide in your life and have no idea, because you were kind to somebody not knowing that they were in a moment of utter despair.' As long as it's done in a respectful and non-intrusive way, I don't think it can hurt anything - and it might help".

As she was driving to work Friday, Buhse said, she heard three mentions of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline's number, which is 800-273-8255.

There is no rhyme or reason to the increases, half of states, from cultures as different as Vermont and North Dakota, saw large changes of over 30 percent. After those states passed "red-flag" gun laws, which enable police to seize firearms from people who are a risk to themselves or others, firearm suicide rates fell significantly, a recent study found.

She said most people experiencing suicidal thoughts are typically relieved to have a chance to talk and get connected with services for help.

When a high-profile person dies by suicide, the "celebrity-suicide effect" can lead to a rise in copycat deaths. But Dr Joshua Gordon, director of the National Institute of Mental Health, said that contradicts years of data, suggesting many have gone undiagnosed and untreated.

The CDC reports that suicides from opioid overdoses almost doubled between 1999 and 2014.

Among those who committed suicide who did not have a known psychiatric condition, 84 percent were men and 16 percent were women.

That's also a resource for anyone anxious about a loved one.

Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky each saw double digit increases in suicides between 1999 and 2016.

Keltz admits the warning signs of someone thinking about committing suicide aren't always easy to see, varying person by person.

"There's been an increasing awareness of helping people in the restaurant business deal with depression, drugs and alcohol, and suicide", Fuller said.

Despite this, she said there are studies that show a rise in teen suicide during the time the series began streaming.

Professor Julie Cerel, president of the American Association of Suicidology, expressed the view that having better reporting standards could account for some of the increase, but also pointed to a lack of adequate funding for mental health research and preventative care. The ADAMHS Board operates the county's 24/7 suicide prevention crisis hotline at 216-623-6888.
