One of those inside characters or characteristics apparently gets way out of whack in its perception of 'the world they live in.' So somehow one or more of the whacked out inner characteristics can set off an inner trigger or inner switch that says, "You've got to get out of here", and suicide is the quickest way to get out. Moreover, 54 percent of people who died by suicide did not have a known mental health condition, according to the report. "Research suggests that families and close friends affected by suicide are at greater risk of suicide themselves and the foundation believes that they should receive support as a matter of priority". Since 1999, our state has seen an increase in suicides of 46.5 percent, the fourth-highest increase in the nation. "At that time, women should be forward thinking and hopeful".

Centuries later, Netflix's controversial drama "13 Reasons Why" has sparked similar results. Suicide is an all too common problem and even affects those who seem to have it all together.

Nationally, suicide rates increased in almost every state from 1999 to 2016.

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

More than half of suicides in 2015 in a subgroup of 27 states were among people with no known mental health condition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found. Suicide is rarely caused by any single factor, health officials said, but information from coroners' reports suggest numerous deaths followed relationship problems, substance use and financial crises. "In many cases, individuals are already struggling with mental health and the news of a death prompts them to seek help".

"Twenty years ago, we wouldn't have even heard about any of these deaths until the 6 o'clock news", she says. New research published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) shows that 37.2% of adults in the United States are taking medication with a potentially depressive side effect.

"This is the period where we are most likely to juggle the complications of aging family members or come face to face with the outcomes of financial risks you took that didn't pay off".

This is especially true among people who experience extreme mood swings associated with bipolar disorder. Further triggering, she says, is the constant barrage of instant reporting on a suicide. 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. Mental health or substance use problems are nearly always present.

Mental illness tends to be blamed more than it should. Remember that traumatic events that could lead to depression can happen to anyone, and more than 1 in 20 Americans suffer from depression on any given day.

"People withdraw, people will start to give their possessions away and they will start to feel as if no body wants me around them or my life is meaningless".

273-8255 - has been widely shared across social media in the last week - with celebrities, news outlets and advocates urging people who have suicidal thoughts to call.
