How to have tough conversations about mental health

US suicide rate on rise: health agency

"I think when someone considers suicide they think it's their only option and it's a scary option but the pain they're going through has gotten them to that place", Litovski says.

The state's senior rate of suicide is still almost double that of the rest of the United States according to a 2018 report by the United Health Foundation.

Researchers found that more than half of people who died by suicide did not have a diagnosed mental health condition.

"It's usually a confluence of factors", said Jerry Reed, a member of the executive committee of the Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention.

Mental health experts say could be a contributing factor.

The topic of suicide is being discussed all across the country now, something that's more prevalent following the sudden deaths of celebrities like Kate Space and Anthony Bourdain.

"He taught all of us how to be an American overseas, how to travel, explore, how to experience the world", said Cullen.

Such groups as Teen Lifeline in Phoenix run call centers devoted to helping younger generations navigate the ups and downs of adolescence and young adulthood.

Veterans are also a key part of the demographics; while veterans make up only 8.5% of the population, they are 18% of adult suicides.

There have been countless articles about the need to break the silence around the topic of mental health and suicide, and I am encouraged by the support people are extending to others. It's important to keep in mind to remove access to firearms, medications, or any other potential tools they might use to harm themselves. But suicide-prevention advocates are emphasizing that hotlines do help and people's calls will go through, despite the surge this week.
