Mental Health and The American Male

  • Mental Health and The American Male

The deaths of Spade and Bourdain are reminders to us all of how subjective success truly is - while the rest of the world looked up to both with such awe and admiration, and as we beamed upon their success seeing both as icons in their respective industries, little did we know they would take their lives, and be gone so soon - just when we thought they were at the peak of their careers.

These tragic deaths have led many people to wonder what's going on.

The package also explores the health and economic consequences of suicides and suicide attempts. The report said nearly half of those who committed suicide had a known mental health condition, but more than half - 54 percent - did not. The WHO estimates that by 2030, depression, which is associated with suicidal behavior, will be our most widespread disease.

On the other hand, another team of researchers from Austria found that suicide rates are reduced following periods when people have been exposed to published accounts of persons coping positively through suicidal moments. "From individuals and communities to employers and healthcare professionals, everyone can play a role in efforts to help save lives and reverse this troubling rise in suicide".

"Reach out to someone if you have someone in your life". In a globalized world, mobility for reasons of education and work can easily lead to displacement, and technological advances are creating a highly unnatural environment to which we have not yet fully adapted. We are becoming fish who have taken ourselves out of the water; it shouldn't be a surprise that many of us are desperately gasping for air. "Finding your people, finding your goal can help save a life". Our relationships start to be ruled by artificial intelligence algorithms, and are therefore weaker and more fickle.

I wanted to be Anthony Bourdain.

People's increasing disconnection from each otherand from themselves goes hand-in-hand with a greater desire for productivity and consumption, leading people to demand more and more from themselves without letting themselves rest. And in return, life - and travel - leaves marks on you.

Now they both are fighting to help strike up conversations, hand out informational literature and reduce the stigma they say has made talking about suicide so hard for those with whom they interact.

Suicide is serious. When talking about it, make sure it is done just as seriously as any other conversation about an illness. Sometimes, the problem can even be due to a chemical imbalance caused by medication.

"You don't seem like yourself; are you having difficulties?" was one.

"So with Americans getting educated about mental health and suicide prevention and then with our legislators supporting suicide prevention, that makes a difference", Allen said. Wikipedia maintains an global list of suicide crisis lines. The state needs more transitional facilities, more acute care beds and more therapists, he said. If you are outside the U.S, please visit the Internation Association for Suicide Prevention. "In some cases, they noticed the hotline number on news reports and made a decision to reach out for help". Last week, the world was shaken and witnessed two celebrity suicides, both of which were said to result from depression. Help is readily available and only a phone call away for those contemplating suicide, which is actually a sin in most religions.

Lastly, we should never forget the spiritual aspect. As National Suicide Prevention Hotline director John Draper told The Wall Street Journal, "Whenever a notable person commits suicide, calls to the hotline spike". But studies show that religious practice does tend to correlate with a lower suicide rate. Meaning given to suffering?

People who loved Spade and Bourdain would agree.

But suicide is a public health issue with complex roots, he said. This does not take into account people who die of alcohol abuse, or drug abuse. Like anyone else, celebrities can be profoundly unhappy, and may suffer from psychological illness.

Fundamentally, suicide is murder by the thought machine - one's own seductive, negative mind-chatter that focuses on enoughness - not good enough, loveable enough, worthy enough, etc., to which many of us can relate.
