Twitter reacts to news of Anthony Bourdain’s death

In its report, the USA government agency reports that in reported suicides that 54 percent of people who died by suicide did not have a known or reported mental health illness.

"We have been on a rise here in the county", ADAMHS director of external affairs Beth Zietlow-DeJesus said, in terms of completed suicides as well as depressive symptoms and suicidal thoughts and attempts, especially in young people. "He was about going into people's homes and meeting them at their level", she said, adding that he also embraced the.MeToo movement. "For mental illness, you just can't tell".

Keltz admits the warning signs of someone thinking about committing suicide aren't always easy to see, varying person by person. "It's not something that spontaneously, abruptly happens without any preceding process", Lieberman says.

The CDC said suicides were rarely caused by any single issue.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study released last week, 25 states have recorded increases of more than 30% since the late 1990s. Mental disorders are the most common, including severe depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and schizophrenia.

Bourdain's passing follows the death of Kate Spade Tuesday. About 45,000 people died from suicide in 2016 alone.

Keltz believes talking about mental health and suicide will help erase the stigma associated with it.

Everyone can learn the signs of suicide, how to respond, and where to access help.

Another way to help is by supporting the nonprofits that provide suicide counseling, prevention and education.

For emergencies that are life-threatening, you should immediately call 911. "I think there's often times a misconception, 'Oh she's being dramatic, she wants attention.' Don't assume that". I really understand.' But mostly are listening and empathic. "You have to get them care now".

Zallar said ask questions.

"It's on all of us to take more responsibility for our own health and the health of our loved ones, both physical and emotional", Dvoskin says.

Calls for better suicide-prevention efforts are mounting, after a federal study identified a sharp rise in suicide rates in the U.S. over the past two decades.

If you're anxious someone you know may be at risk of suicide, you should talk to them about it, says the Canadian Association of Suicide Prevention.
