Why Is Suicide on the Rise?

In the wake of the untimely death of Anthony Bourdain– it’s difficult to ignore the reality of the rising rate of suicide in the United States. Can we point a finger add any factors giving rise to this misfortune? More importantly – if we know to what the cause is perhaps we can find a way to correct it.

The rise is equitable among age, sex, race, and ethnic background. The leading factors pushing people to the edge are relationship issues and financial troubles. Geographically, however, it seems that the western states have it tougher.

Being more isolated, like many of the states, it takes a little longer for the economy to rebound. Add to that the accessibility of people to one another – it’s unlike urban and suburban area – it’s a lonely place to be depressed.

Suicidal thoughts are not easily swatted away from a melancholy state of mind. It also doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a chronic downward spiral giving way to a break. Never underestimate the power of a text therapy app. Talk therapy is what keeps us in the game. If you find you can’t talk it out – text though it.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and appearance.
    I must say you’ve done a awesome job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Chrome.
    Outstanding Blog!

    Unless you’re fluent in insurance-ese (as some of you undoubtedly are!) buying homeowners insurance is bound to be an adventure-an exploration into worlds and places you’ve never seen before and quite frankly are hoping you’ll never have to see again! Buying homeowners insurance online can take some of the pressure off and make it easier for you to find the insurance coverage you need without having to sacrifice quality to get insurance coverage you can afford.
