Reach out to those who may be struggling

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death for adults and the second leading cause of death among teens and adolescents in the United States.

After Marilyn Monroe died in August 1962, the cause listed as probable suicide, the nation mourned - publicly.

The CDC study found that 54% of Americans who died by suicide had no known mental health illness.

Men die by suicide 3.53 x more often than women. There was an 116 percent increase in volume from Friday to Sunday compared to the weekend before, she said.

"Searches for precise suicide methods increased after the series' release", wrote the study's authors, while also noting that it was unclear whether an increase in searches equals an increase in actual suicide attempts (though there's typically a correlation between the two).

Heidi Zinzow (left) and Martie Thompson have several ongoing research projects to better understand suicide. For readers outside the US, visit Suicide.org or Befrienders Worldwide for global resources you can use to find help.

Clemson's Tigers Together to Stop Suicide, started in the fall of 2014, implemented a range of policy and programmatic initiatives.

"In other words, says Daniel Reidenberg, executive director of Suicide Awareness Voices of Education, "'if they couldn't make it, how can I?'" That's why, he tells Yahoo Lifestyle, "we know that when there's a celebrity suicide, it increases the risk of contagion". What factors put someone at risk for suicide, and how can we reverse the trend? "They are asking about warning signs and guidance on what to do", Lovejoy said. There are usually multiple causes, and how they interplay is complex. This includes viral social media challenges that encourage users to engage in risky self-harming behavior.

But he has since lowered expectations, backing away from an original demand for North Korea's swift denuclearisation. It is unclear, however, under what terms North Korea would agree to in an effort to reduce its nuclear arsenal.

For some people, "feeling connected and feeling like they belong are really important things", says the CDC's Dr Stone.

The suicide rate among young teen girls is now almost triple what it was in 2000. Zinzow and Thompson lead a team of students who are working on a Creative Inquiry undergraduate research project as part of Tigers Together to Stop Suicide.

There are signs that you could look for when it comes to getting people help.

Drugs and guns are two areas in which Zinzow and Thompson are not now working, but they see a desperate need for research to understand their roles in suicide.

And that's how it is most of the time when an ordinary citizen commits suicide-unless it was done in a very public manner, or the person is well-known locally.

"Even if you go into treatment and it's not the right fit, don't despair", Gould said.

In the wake of the recent suicides of fashion and accessory designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef, author, and award-winning travel documentarian Anthony Bourdain, the Wall Street Journal has reported that the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline has seen an increase in calls during the time span following their deaths.

Most mental health experts have since come to agree that exposure to high-profile suicide coverage - especially coverage with gratuitous detail - can trigger those struggling with suicidal thoughts.
