How to get help for someone who might be suicidal

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States and is rarely caused by a single factor experts say

"Gordon said doctors need to ask patients at every opportunity about their mental health and evaluate their risk for suicide". Twenty-five states experienced a rise in suicides by more than 30 percent, the government report finds.

Reidenberg understands the complexities of suicides, pointing out there are nearly always multiple causes, including mental illnesses, substance abuse, a life change such as a job loss or a break up.

The CDC study found, too, that suicide increased among all sexes, ages, races and ethnic groups.

Suicide prevention is top of mind for many Oregonians in the wake of two high-profile celebrity deaths and the release of a federal report detailing a nationwide surge in suicide rates in the past few days.

Although suicide is often attributed exclusively to mental health conditions, it is rarely caused by a single factor, the researchers said.

"There are mental health components, but also there's relationships, employment, a lack of connectedness that we might see in males that increases the risk for suicide", said Misty Vaughan Allen, Nevada's state suicide prevention coordinator. It may be uncomfortable but make sure your loved one knows you are there for them and there are resources.

The CDC recommends teaching children, teens and adults coping and problem-solving skills, building social connections and maintaining dialogue.

New Jersey State Trooper stops retired officer who delivered him
Trooper Michael Patterson pulled over retired Piscataway Police Officer Matthew Bailly on Friday in Kingswood. Paterson soon learned that Bailly was a retired cop from Piscataway, New Jersey, where Patterson grew up.

The report also cites the need to reduce "access to lethal means" but without explicitly discussing firearms or controversial issues such as gun control legislation. During the study period, rate increases ranged from just under 6 percent in DE to over 57 percent in North Dakota.

The Cuyahoga County Board of Health does not have any suicide prevention programming, according to communication officer Kevin Brennan. "The conversation about firearms and suicide doesn't have to be a debate about the Second Amendment".

A suicide study, conducted by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, revealed the decision to attempt suicide is usually done on impulse.

Genevieve Weber, Hofstra University associate professor of counseling and mental health, agreed that a direct approach is best.

Are you thinking about dying?

There are many avenues for treatment, but experts say getting the right help begins with simply asking someone if they are having suicidal thoughts. "And there's good research to support that".

Earlier this year Gov. Ralph Northam signed a new law that requires the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services to report its progress and activity on suicide prevention every year. "There are some for youth, but they're very, very tiny", says Gebbia. "Suicide is a public health problem that can be prevented".
