Regina man remembers father after Spade and Bourdain deaths

Regina man remembers father after Spade and Bourdain deaths

Allen, who has been at the department since 1998, said the state had the highest suicide rate in the nation when she started her work.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports almost 45,000 lives were lost to suicide in 2016.

"People who attempt suicide are often acutely distressed or in crisis at that particular moment". But in MA, that rate increased 35.3 percent. Unfortunately, it's not just Pennsylvania that saw an increase of deaths from suicide, nearly every other state recorded an increase.

Numerous factors seem to increase the risk of suicide, such as relationship problems, substance misuse, physical health challenges, financial issues or legal problems, the report found.

For those living anywhere else the International Association for Suicide Prevention and Befrienders Worldwide can provide contact details for suicide help.

"Unfortunately, our data show that the problem is getting worse", CDC Principal Deputy Director Dr. Anne Schuchat said in a press briefing.

Middle-age adults had the highest increase in suicides. "Firearms were the most common method of suicide used by those with and without a known diagnosed mental health condition".


Experts said while people are shocked by Bourdain and Spade's deaths, the problem of death by suicide is enormous.

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death and one of just three leading causes that are on the rise.

If you or someone you know is struggling with depression or has had thoughts of harming themselves or taking their own life, get help.

Alejo encourages anyone with thoughts of suicide or anyone needing help to reach out to pillar or other organizations. "So, when you put those things together, it can be hard to find help even when you want it", Trisha Kajimura, Mental Health America of Hawai'i Executive Director, said. Every state but Nevada saw an increase in suicide rates during that time, the CDC reported.

The National Suicide Prevention hotline is 1-800-273-TALK or text "TALK" to 741741.

The answer may be that half of those who died by suicide did not have a known mental health condition. Those uncomfortable speaking on the phone can also opt to text the Crisis Text Line by texting the word NAMI to 741-741.
