Anthony Bourdain's death impacts local community

Irene MckinneyJun 09, 2018

Suicide is on the rise across the USA, claiming the lives of almost 45,000 Americans age 10 or older in 2016, according to new data from the CDC.

"What's also known about neighbor islands is the difficulty in accessing mental health care, as well as other types of medical care".

According to the CDC report, the number of suicides has increased by more than 30 percent in half of the states in the USA, and more than half of the people who died by suicide didn't have a known mental health condition.

"Most people that either attempt or complete suicide, they aren't so much wanting to die as they want to be out of the pain they are in", Summers said.

Researchers and advocacy groups who work to prevent suicide say the report shows that much more needs to be done to tackle this growing problem.

In addition to being geographically widespread, USA suicide rates rose in both men and women and across all racial and ethnic groups, the study found.

They might have increased anxiety, feel trapped, have extreme mood swings or become angrier.

A new report from the Centers for Disease Control shows the suicide rate grew 20 percent faster in Kansas than the national average. From 2006 to 2016, 10,256 people died by suicide in the state, according to data from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

The reason for this is relatively simple: Unlike other common methods of suicide, firing a gun is an immediate, irreversible, and reliably lethal act.

On Thursday, the CDC released a report showing every state has seen an increase over the past two decades; every state except for Nevada.

"People can live with suicidal thoughts for weeks, months, years and, you know, what are the triggering events that push them from living with thoughts to having a plan and then acting on that plan?" said George Austin with the Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline. This conference will strengthen the resources available to all people and help to reduce the stigma of mental health issues and suicide.

Suicide prevention strategiesThe report calls on state and local communities, health care providers, and individuals to take steps to prevent suicide.

The number of self-inflicted deaths in 2016 - roughly the equivalent of the entire population of Murray, Utah - placed suicide as the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. Bourdain's death was also confirmed to be a suicide after his friend and fellow celebrity chef Eric Ripert found him unresponsive in his hotel room in France. "We think that a comprehensive approach to suicide is what's needed". It has to be paired with measures that would make suicidal people less likely to die even if they never went to see a doctor. Listen to them. Take their feelings seriously, because they're real and they're serious.

"Those are a few things we might point to", she added.

"People tend to tip-toe around sensitive issues like suicide".

"A lot of people, they feel like they know themselves well, or they feel like their loved ones know them very well, but sometimes there are things that are underlying that need to be straightened out", Dr. Anthony Quinn said.
