Don’t Be Afraid to Talk With Someone

Advocates with the IN chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention are IN Washington this week, along with others from across the country, meeting with members of Congress and stressing the importance of funding for suicide prevention efforts, research and mental health resources. When some younger reporters at a major national news organization urged that the suicide hotline be publicized following last week's deaths, an editor said that it wasn't their job because "we're not social workers", said Kelly McBride, media ethicist for the Poynter Institute.

According to TheHill.com, an estimated 400 physicians took their lives in 2016.

According to the CDC, 45,000 people died as a result of suicide in 2016.

Draper said the reason for the uptick is two-fold: a celebrity suicide can trigger suicidal thoughts in people who might already vulnerable to them, and publicizing the phone number to call for support increases odds that people will call.

Nationally, suicide rates increased in almost every state from 1999 to 2016. This week the authorities of USA health care told that there had been an intense rise in suicide rates all over the country, since the starting of the century and had called for a detailed approach to address against depression. And in terms of ethnic breakdown, CDC research shows that American Indians have the highest rate of suicides per 100,000 people, followed by whites.

Melissa Kurtenbach will appear on KVOE's Talk of Emporia at 11:06 a.m. Friday with more information on suicide prevention.

The highest female suicide rate in 2016 was in women from ages 25 to 64.


What can we do until we know more?

Draper said calls to the lifeline can spike following celebrity suicides because of a "collective sense of loss that many people feel".

N.H. seeks solutions for rising suicide rate. 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.

While some expressed challenges in renewing former friendships, another Reddit user summed up the importance of connecting with other people: "The... important thing is to try to be a good friend to the people in your life right now". Long gone are the days when mental health issues are ignored; professional help is out there, and being depressed, for example, is something for which treatment may be needed.

Suicide, first, with no introspection and patience, to me, would be like telling the Lord he's a liar and not trusting what He says. "So people might say, 'If their life is so bad, and they had everything, what hope is there for someone like me?'"

Then ask if there is a problem or if there's anything they want to talk about.
