Kate Spade obituary - 1962-2018 - Style guru had flair and sophistication

In the wake of the tragic suicides of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, and a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about the sharply rising suicide rates in our country, actress Olivia Munn opened up about her own battle with depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts on Instagram.

"We can't rationalize an irrational mind", she said.

The state with the lowest rise in its suicide rate was DE (5.9 percent).

"The reason most suicide decedents don't have a known mental disorder is that they were never diagnosed, not that they didn't have one", said Dr. David Brent, a professor of psychiatry at the University of Pittsburg. "We don't think we can just leave this to the mental health system to manage".

In Pennsylvania, the suicide rate increased by 34 percent from 1999 to 2016 and the state's suicide rate of 16.3 per 100,000 people was higher than the national average of 15.4 per 100,000 people.

Firearms were by far the leading method, accounting for about half the suicides. "We can all make a difference by knowing the warning signs and how to reach out for help", Morris continued. I don't talk about him as a person who died by suicide because that was how he died. Wisconsin and IL saw an increase from 19 to 30 percent.

Sleeping too little or too much.

If a person talks about taking their life or feeling hopeless or withdraws from social activities. "So it's always good to stay connected with people and sort of touch base". Follow up to see how they're doing.

"Suicide prevention is the responsibility of the entire community and requires vision, will and a commitment from the state, communities and individuals of OR", the agency says in its formal youth suicide prevention and intervention plan.
