Government's Suicide Initiative Ignores Suicide-Linked Drugs
 
It would be laughable if it weren't tragic. This week Surgeon General Regina Benjamin introduced a plan to stem the nation's growing suicide rate without addressing the nation's growing use of suicide-linked drugs.
 
Antidepressants like Prozac and Paxil, antipsychotics like Seroquel and Zyprexa and anti-seizure drugs like Lyrica and Neurontin are all linked to suicide in published reports and in FDA warnings. (Almost 5,000 newspaper reports link antidepressants to suicide, homicide and bizarre behavior.)

Asthma drugs like Singulair, antismoking drugs like Chantix, acne drugs like Accutane and the still-in-use malaria drug Lariam, are also linked to suicide.
 
The US's suicide rate has risen to 38,000 a year, says USA Today, after falling in the 1990s.

The rise correlates with the debut of direct-to-consumer drug advertising in the late 1990s, the approval of many drugs with suicide links and more people taking psychoactive drugs for lifestyle problems.

Can drinking diet soda lead to depression?
By Annie Hauser, Everyday Health Staff Writermercurynews.com
Posted:   01/09/2013 03:42:50 PM PST

Just under half of all Americans reported drinking at least one glass of soda per day, while two-thirds said they drink at least one cup of coffee daily, according to a 2012 Gallup poll. Despite popular opinion about soda and weight gain, the same poll found that frequent soda drinkers do not weigh more than non-soda drinkers.

But health experts still say that even one glass of soda a day is too much, as it has been linked to a variety of health problems, including a relatively new one, clinical depression.

Preliminary data from a National Institutes of Health report that will be released in March at the American Academy of Neurology's 65th Annual Meeting in San Diego show that regular soda drinkers, particularly those who drink diet soda, are more likely to be diagnosed with depression. The data showed that coffee drinkers, on the other hand, have a slightly lower risk of a depression diagnosis.


The researchers do not say that soda causes depression — they did not determine whether people who are likely to become depressed are also simply more likely to drink soda in the first place, and the study did not control for all relevant factors, such as socioeconomic status

Diet Soda Linked to Depression in NIH Study
Coffee tied to a decrease in depression cases

By Jason Koebler
January 9, 2013

According to the research, which will be officially released at the American Academy of Neurology's annual meeting in mid-March, people who drink four cans or more of soda daily are about 30 percent more likely to be diagnosed with depression than people who don't drink soda. Coffee drinkers are about 10 percent less likely to develop depression than people who don't drink coffee.
...
According to researchers, "the risk appeared to be greater for people who drank diet [rather] than regular soda."
...
"Our research suggests that cutting out or down on sweetened diet drinks or replacing them with unsweetened coffee may naturally help lower your depression risk," Honglei Chen, who led the study, said in a statement

Record Numbers of US Military and Veteran Suicides

Stephen Lendman
Prison Planet.com
Feb 11, 2013

Headlines like this should shock: Suicides Outpace War Deaths. Surge in Military Suicides. Nearly Two Dozen Veterans Commit Suicide Daily.

These reports and similar ones reveal imperialism’s dark side. War takes its toll. Civilians suffer most. So do many combatants and veterans after returning home.

Most people don’t know. Little gets reported. Why do active duty personnel and vets take their own lives?

Unbearable emotional pain consumes them. Daily trauma builds. So does intolerable stress. Relief is desperately sought. Suicide is chosen. It’s a last option. Others were exhausted. Preventable warning signs aren’t heeded. They include depression, withdrawal, lethargy, loss of interest in usual activities, appetite, weight, sleep and other behavioral changes, recurring suicidal thoughts, and feelings of hopelessness and despair.

Daily stress is bad enough. Combat exacerbates it. It’s intolerable for many. The little known human cost of war raises disturbing questions. America consumes its own.

Epidemic post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) levels affect hundreds of thousands of combat forces and vets.

The VA estimates over 30% of Vietnam vets, around 10% of Gulf War forces, and up to 20% of America’s Afghanistan and Iraq troops.

VA and DOD officials consistently understate problems. Independent reports reveal more. Some say nearly half of Afghan and Iraq vets have emotional and/or physical combat injuries.

In May 2012, AP said America’s vets “are filing for disability benefits at (a) historic rate.” They’re the “most medically, mentally troubled generation in US history.”

War’s toll is one of the most underreported stories. Hundreds of thousands of combat vets won’t ever be the same again.

They come home sick. They stay that way. They’re traumatized. They’re unable to cope. Emotional damage done goes largely unrecognized. It’s an unseen wound. Many needing help don’t get it.

The emotional ordeal is overwhelming. It’s terrifying. War vets are gravely affected. PTSD causes emotional numbness. Left untreated, it worsens. Horrifying flashbacks are commonplace.

Images, sounds, smells and subconscious feelings trigger them. Emotions well up inside. They surface self-destructively. It can happen any time. Some victims recover in months. For others it’s much longer or never.

War is a destructive slippery slope. It drives victims to emotional hell. They’re sure what afflicts them. PTSD prevents normal functioning.

Victims say they’re too tired. They can’t think. They can’t function normally. Their brains are overwhelmed.
They lash out at others for no reason. They harm those they love. They can’t explain why. Diagnosing PTSD is tricky. Often it’s not done. Victims needing help don’t get it. Others get too little. There’s no cure.

Measurable physical/biological symptoms aren’t apparent. Those mentioned above are commonplace. Others include headaches, unexplained pain, inability to cope, severe anxiety, rage, and survivor guilt for those who lost buddies.

Toughing it out depends on developing coping mechanisms. It’s not easy without competent professional help. For many it involves long-term struggle. Too often it’s too much to bear.

Broken human psyches aren’t easily repaired. Shocking suicide numbers explain best. More on that below.

Strange twist:

Navy Seal who allegedly shot Bin Laden says US military has abandoned him
Retired commando alleges he's been left without healthcare or financial support as he struggles to adapt to a new civilian life


Ed Pilkington in New York
guardian.co.uk, Monday 11 February 2013 13.55 EST
...
A retired Navy Seal who claims to have killed Osama bin Laden by shooting him three times in the forehead has accused the US military of abandoning him to his fate without any financial support, healthcare or security protection as he makes the hard transition to civilian life.

The former commando was a member of the team of 23 Navy Seals that stormed a house in Abbottabad, Pakistan, on 2 May 2011 and killed the world's most wanted terrorist, according to Esquire. An article in the magazine, written in collaboration with the Center for Investigative Reporting, tells the commando's story as apparently the last person to see Bin Laden alive.

But it is the Navy Seal's caustic comments about his treatment at the hands of the military as he seeks to make the shift back to civilian life that are attracting most attention. The "Shooter", as he is anonymously referred to, tells the magazine that after the Abbottabad raid he felt burned out and decided to take early retirement three years before the official requirement of 20 years' service
...
He bitterly remarks that if he had been killed on a special-ops mission, his family would have fared much better than the reality of his retirement. "If I get killed on this next deployment," he told Esquire before he made his final mission to Afghanistan before leaving the navy: "I know my family will be taken care of. College will be paid for, they'll be fine.
...

Suicide ‘now the biggest killer of young men in Britain’
 Sunday 24 Mar 2013 12:48 pm

Suicide is now the biggest killer of young men in Britain, a charity has claimed.
 
Three young males take their own life on average every day across the country – and the recession is thought to be playing a part in many of the deaths.
 
The latest figures show that the suicide rate rose significantly in 2011 with 4,552 men taking their own life out of a total of 6,045 people.
 
The highest rate was in the male age bracket 30-44. Suicide in this group accounted for more deaths than road accidents, murder and HIV/Aids combined.
 
‘The reasons for suicide are complex and often very individual,’ said Jane Powell from the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM).
 
‘The economic climate and social factors such as insecurities around work and housing, social isolation and substance misuse are felt particularly strongly in this group.’
 
It is believed that hundreds of male suicides could be prevented if men felt able to ask for help when they desperately need it.
 
According to CALM, men experience a ‘cultural barrier’ when it comes to seeking professional help, restricted by modern society which expects them to be  immune to a nervous breakdown.
 
Team GB snowboarding coach Nelson Pratt, 33, was found by his father hanged from a gymnasium ring in his garage last summer.
 
His  friend Marcus Chapman has joined the charity’s campaign to raise awareness of male suicide.
 
‘Nelson was popular, healthy, successful and physically very fit,’ said Mr Chapman.
...
Ms Powell added: ‘This is a huge problem now in the UK and the time has come to start talking about it.’
 
Research by the University of Liverpool shows the recession in the UK has caused about 1,000 additional suicides in England – 846 among men and 155 among women.

The analysis showed that increases in male unemployment were associated with about two-fifths of the rises in suicides among men.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

I can't help but wonder if the psychopathic, ruling-class control-freaks who literally get off on human suffering aren't angered by this trend.

So now that the DOW reaches a new high so has the suicide rate in the USA,,,

Suicide Among Adults Aged 35–64 Years — United States, 1999–2010
 
Weekly
May 3, 2013 / 62(17);321-325


Suicide is an increasing public health concern.

In 2009, the number of deaths from suicide surpassed the number of deaths from motor vehicle crashes in the United States

(1). Traditionally, suicide prevention efforts have been focused mostly on youths and older adults, but recent evidence suggests that there have been substantial increases in suicide rates among middle-aged adults in the United States

(2). To investigate trends in suicide rates among adults aged 35–64 years over the last decade, CDC analyzed National Vital Statistics System (NVSS) mortality data from 1999–2010. Trends in suicide rates were examined by sex, age group, race/ethnicity, state and region of residence, and mechanism of suicide.

The results of this analysis indicated that the annual, age-adjusted suicide rate among persons aged 35–64 years increased 28.4%, from 13.7 per 100,000 population in 1999 to 17.6 in 2010. Among racial/ethnic populations, the greatest increases were observed among American Indian/Alaska Natives (AI/ANs) (65.2%, from 11.2 to 18.5) and whites (40.4%, from 15.9 to 22.3).

By mechanism, the greatest increase was observed for use of suffocation (81.3%, from 2.3 to 4.1), followed by poisoning (24.4%, from 3.0 to 3.8) and firearms (14.4%, from 7.2 to 8.3). The findings underscore the need for suicide preventive measures directed toward middle-aged populations.
...

http://rt.com/usa/us-suicides-crisis-cdc-report-761/
...
Among the male population, the greatest increases were among those aged 50–54 years and 55–59 years, (49.4 per cent, from 20.6 to 30.7, and 47.8 per cent, from 20.3 to 30.0 respectively). Among females, suicide rates tended to increase with age. The largest percentage increase in suicide rate was observed among women aged 60–64 years (59.7 per cent, from 4.4 to 7.0).
...
Men were more likely to take their own lives than women. The suicide rate for middle-aged men was 27.3 deaths per 100,000, while for women it was 8.1 deaths per 100,000.
...
Baby Boomer crisis


 CDC officials emphasized that the Baby Boomer generation is witnessing the highest increase in suicides (A Baby Boomer is a person who was born post-World War II, between the years 1946 and 1964, when the annual birthrate increased dramatically in the US).

“It is the Baby Boomer group where we see the highest rates of suicide,” CDC deputy director, Dr. Ileana Arias, told the New York Times. “There may be something about that group, and how they think about life issues and their life choices that may make a difference.”

 The rise in suicides among this group may be connected with the recent downturn in the global economy and the challenges the Baby Boomer generation must now confront.

“The increase does coincide with a decrease in financial standing for a lot of families over the same time period,” Arias said.

 In 2010, the first year of economic comeback following the 2009-2010 recession, 93 per cent of all pre-tax income gains went to the top 1 per cent of the American population, which in that year meant any household earning more than $358,000.

Note that the intermountain and western US has consistently higher suicide rates than most other states. The "suicide belt" shown here has been noted, however, since at least the 1980s (see Seiden, "Death in the West," (1984) cited below in endnotes). Source of data:McIntosh (2004), cited below.

Evangelical Christians and suicide

Why are Protestants so unhappy they consider suicide? hmmm
 
Since many of the critics who attack the Church on this issue are conservative Evangelical protestants, it is perhaps fair to ask how well Evangelicals fare on measures of mental health when the same shoddy methodology is applied to them.
 
If we play the same game as the evangelical critics, we could choose the states with high concentrations of conservative Protestants. There are thirteen states in which the Southern Baptist Convention has more congregations than any other denomination.[12] The suicide rates for these states are tabulated below

Am I the only one who finds it pathetic that South Park did a better job candidly addressing this issue than nearly all of the tens of millions of armchair psychologists in this country?

       http://www.southparkstudios.com/full-episodes/s01e06-death

Is it possible that one of the primary reasons for this tragic increase in self-inflicted death is that those who've grown suicidally depressed know that, even if they reach out to family members, they'll merely get lectured to or, worse, threatened with forced drugging and/or institutionalization?

One thing is certain: continuing to make this an absolutely taboo subject for intelligent discussion clearly isn't "helping" matters, and may even be making them worse than they otherwise would be.

Baby boomers are killing themselves at an alarming rate, raising question: Why?
By Tara Bahrampour,  
 Published: June 3

... part of an alarming trend among baby boomers, whose suicide rates shot up precipitously between 1999 and 2010.

It has long held true that elderly people have higher suicide rates than the overall population. But numbers released in May by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show a dramatic spike in suicides among middle-aged people, with the highest increases among men in their 50s, whose rate went up by nearly 50 percent to 30 per 100,000; and women in their early 60s, whose rate rose by nearly 60 percent (though it is still relatively low compared with men, at 7 in 100,000). The highest rates were among white and Native American and Alaskan men. In recent years, deaths by suicide has surpassed deaths by motor vehicle crashes.

Suicide Among Adults Aged 35–64 Years — United States, 1999–2010
....

Editorial Note

Suicide rates among both men and women aged 35–64 years increased substantially from 1999 and 2010.

This finding is consistent with a previous study that showed a notable increase in the overall suicide rate among middle-aged adults relative to a small increase in suicide rates among younger persons and a small decline in older persons during a similar period (2). The increases were geographically widespread and occurred in states with high, as well as average and low suicide rates. By race/ethnicity, the increases were highest and statistically significant only among whites and American Indian/Alaska Natives, widening the racial/ethnic gap in suicide rates (3).

Prevalence of mechanisms of suicide changed from 1999 to 2010. Whereas firearm and poisoning suicide rates increased significantly, suffocation (predominantly hanging) suicide rates increased the most among men and women aged 35–64 years. This increasing trend is particularly troubling because a large proportion of suicide attempts by suffocation result in death, suggesting a need for increased public awareness of suicide risk factors and research of potential suicide prevention strategies to reduce suffocation deaths (2).

Possible contributing factors for the rise in suicide rates among middle-aged adults include the recent economic downturn (historically, suicide rates tend to correlate with business cycles, with higher rates observed during times of economic hardship) (6,7);
a cohort effect, based on evidence that the "baby boomer" generation had unusually high suicide rates during their adolescent years (8); and a rise in intentional overdoses associated with the increase in availability of prescription opioids (1,2).

Additional research is needed to understand the cause of the increase in age-adjusted suicide rates and why the extent of the increase varies across racial/ethnic populations.

| - - - - - -  

...
There are no large-scale studies yet fleshing out the reasons behind the increase in boomer suicides. Part of it is likely tied to the recent economic downturn — financial recessions are in general associated with an uptick in suicides. But the trend started a decade before the 2008 recession, and psychologists and academics say it likely stems from a complex matrix of issues particular to a generation that vowed not to trust anyone older than 30 and who rocked out to lyrics such as,

“I hope I die before I get old.”
...
... compared with their parents’ generation, boomers have higher rates of obesity, prescription and illicit drug abuse, alcoholism, divorce, depression and mental disorders. As they age, many add to that list chronic illness, disabilities and the strains of caring for their parents and for adult children who still depend on them financially.
...
The idea that so many of us in this country have been brought up with — that you work hard, you get your house, you get your American dream, everything is rosy — it hasn’t worked out. A lot of these boomers aren’t going to earn as much money as their parents did. They aren’t going to be as secure as their parents were. And that’s quite troubling for the boomers.”
...
It is unclear whether younger generations will follow or buck the boomer trend as they age, or if boomers will continue to kill themselves at such high rates as they move into retirement.
...

Drug overdose deaths spike among middle-aged women

It's Men AND Women - the women are just catching up to the death rate of men...

http://www.cdc.gov/homeandrecreationalsafety/rxbrief/


Drug overdose death rates in the United States have more than tripled since 1990 and have never been higher.

In 2008, more than 36,000 people died from drug overdoses, and most of these deaths were caused by prescription drugs.4
...

The misuse and abuse of prescription painkillers was responsible for more than 475,000 emergency department visits in 2009, a number that nearly doubled in just five years.6

More than 12 million people reported using prescription painkillers non-medically in 2010, that is, using them without a prescription or for the feeling they cause.
...

In 2010, 2 million people reported using prescription painkillers nonmedically for the first time within the last year—nearly 5,500 a day
...
People on Medicaid are prescribed painkillers at twice the rate of non-Medicaid patients and are at six times the risk of prescription painkillers overdose.20,21 One Washington State study found that 45% of people who died from prescription painkiller overdoses were Medicaid enrollees

http://www.cdc.gov/vitalsigns/PainkillerOverdoses/index.html
...
Enough prescription painkillers were prescribed in 2010 to medicate every American adult around-the-clock for a month.

[ So that means 1/12 of the population have prescriptions ! -
let's see 1/12 of 200-220 million adult population of US - that's about 16-18 Million !!! ]

Prescription Painkiller Use at Record High for Americans
By JIM AVILA (@JimAvilaABC) and MICHAEL MURRAY

April 20, 2011

It is unclear if Americans are suffering from more pain than ever, but they are definitely getting more prescriptions for it. The use of Vicodin, the most popular pain relief drug in the country, has grown dramatically from 112 million doses prescribed in 2006, to 131 million in the U.S. today, according to a national survey done by the consulting firm IMS Health.

"Vicodin is the most prescribed opioid mainly because it's been incorrectly scheduled as a class III rather than a II," says Andrew Kolodny, Chair of Psychiatry at Maimonides Medical Center in New York. "Many states have prescribing regulations linked to DEA scheduling. But it is no less abusable or addictive than Oxycodone or heroin."

Who is prescribing all that Vicodin? More than 600,000 doctors, from surgeons to podiatrists, are licensed by the Drug Enforcement Agency to prescribe the drug.

Experts say most of those prescriptions are unnecessary.

The United States makes up only 4.6 percent of the world's population, but consumes 80 percent of its opioids -- and 99 percent of the world's hydrocodone, the opiate that is in Vicodin.

The Suicide Epidemic
5/22/2013

...
The world’s most depressing spreadsheet. There are as many intentional ways to die as there are people to imagine them, and we saw more of all of them: an almost 20 percent rise in the annual suicide rate, a 30 percent jump in the sheer number of people who died, at least 400,000 casualties in a decade—about the same toll as World War II and Korea combined.
...
This year, America is likely to reach a grim milestone: the 40,000th death by suicide, the highest annual total on record, and one reached years ahead of what would be expected by population growth alone. We blew past an even bigger milestone revealed in November, when a study lead by Ian Rockett, an epidemiologist at West Virginia University, showed that suicide had become the leading cause of “injury death” in America. As the CDC noted again this spring, suicide outpaces the rate of death on the road—and for that matter anywhere else people accidentally harm themselves. Somewhere Ralph Nader is smiling, but the takeaway is darkly profound: we’ve become our own greatest danger.

This development evades simple explanation. The shift in suicides began long before the recession, for example, and although the changes accelerated after 2007, when the unemployment rate began to rise, no more than a quarter of those new suicides have been tied to joblessness, according to researchers. Guns aren’t all to blame either, since the suicide rate has grown even as the portion of suicides by firearm has remained stable.

The fact is, self-harm has become a worldwide concern. This emerged in the new Global Burden of Disease report, published in The Lancet this past December. It’s the largest ever effort to document what ails, injures, and exterminates the species. But allow me to save you the reading. Humankind’s biggest health problem is humankind.
...
Throughout the developed world, for example, self-harm is now the leading cause of death for people 15 to 49, surpassing all cancers and heart disease.
...
The suicide rate for Americans 45 to 64 has jumped more than 30 percent in the last decade, according to the new CDC report, and it’s possible to slice the data even more finely than they did. Among white, middle-aged men, the rate has jumped by more than 50 percent, according to a Newsweek analysis of the public data. If these guys were to create a breakaway territory, it would have the highest suicide rate in the world. In wealthy countries, suicide is the leading cause of death for men in their 40s, a top-five killer of men in their 50s, and the burden of suicide has increased by double digits in both groups since 1990.

The situation is even more dramatic for white, middle-aged women, who experienced a 60 percent rise in suicide in that same period, a shift accompanied by a comparable increase in emergency-room visits for drug-related (usually prescription-drug-related) attempts to die. In a sad twist, they often make a bid for death using the same medicine that was supposed to turn them back toward life. And the picture is equally grim for women in high-income countries, where self-harm trails only breast cancer as a killer of women in their early 40s—and has become the leading killer of women in their 30s. “In the middle of the journey of our life / I found myself in a dark wood,” begins Dante’s epic tour of hell. He wouldn’t have to change the line today.
...
That means that the last decade isn’t just a statistical blip, a function of a bad recession, unlocked gun cases, or an aging counterculture. It’s much darker, and deeper than all that. This is the “new epidemiology of suicide,” as Phillips puts it, one where the tectonic changes of the last decade—socially, culturally, economically—have created a heavy burden of suicide, growing heavier by the year. “The baby-boomer generation,” Phillips writes in her new paper on boomers, “may be the tip of the iceberg.”
...

Study disputes link between combat and suicide
msn news | By Lindsey Tanner   of Associated Press

Depression and other mental illness, alcohol abuse and being male were all linked to self-inflected deaths among current and former military members.

CHICAGO — Combat appears to have little or no influence on suicide rates among U.S. troops and veterans, according to a military study that challenges the conventional thinking about war's effects on the psyche.

Depression and other types of mental illness, alcohol problems and being male — strong risk factors for suicide among civilians — were all linked to self-inflicted deaths among current and former members of the military.

But the researchers found deployment and combat did not raise the risk.

"The findings from this study are not consistent with the assumption that specific deployment-related characteristics, such as length of deployment, number of deployments, or combat experiences, are directly associated" with suicides, the authors wrote.

Do the authors of this "study" have financial ties with the banker-owned war machine?

The answer, of course, is yes they do.

So is it any wonder they absolved their ruling class masters of guilt?

 I dispute this bogus study.

These men and women coming home from 2,3,4, tours of duty [hell!], can not cope with all of the Death, Horror, Destruction; and the fact that they have killed innocent men, women and children---and this haunts them deep in their minds and then they end this suffering, by suicide.

 If our young men and women were not subjected to this moral conflict: Well they would still be alive: just as those that are dead from illegal wars.

Suicide rate growing in Italy over economic woes
Published on Nov 28, 2013 

On Tuesday in Sicily, a man who was 10,000 euros in debt doused himself with gasoline and set himself on fire. The flames reached his wife and daughter and caused them serious burns. In another incident, an entrepreneur from the town of Avellino, in the Campania region, hanged himself on Sunday because he was overridden by debts. Hardly a day goes by without reports of new suicide attempts or violent episodes linked to the grave recession that has been staggering Italy for over two years. Italy's Observatory of Health recently warned that the number of suicides that can be linked to economic factors has increased by 20 to 30 per cent in the last four years

Major increase in middle aged suicides

NY Times - Suicide rates among middle-aged Americans have risen sharply in the past decade, prompting concern that a generation of baby boomers who have faced years of economic worry and easy access to prescription painkillers may be particularly vulnerable to self-inflicted harm.

More people now die of suicide than in car accidents, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which published the findings in Friday’s issue of its Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. In 2010 there were 33,687 deaths from motor vehicle crashes and 38,364 suicides.

Suicide has typically been viewed as a problem of teenagers and the elderly, and the surge in suicide rates among middle-aged Americans is surprising.

Young Iranian immigrant burns himself to death in Athens

A young man has committed suicide by self-immolation at a crossroads in central Athens.

The incident took place at about 7 am local time. Eyewitnesses say the man doused himself in petrol and set on fire. Police tried but failed to save him. He was pronounced dead on arrival in hospital.

Officers found a wallet with the man’s papers at the self-immolation site. He was a 28-year-old immigrant from Iran.

Experts concerned suicides could increase
Posted: Jan 13, 2010 2:05 PM PST Updated: Jan 16, 2010 2:46 PM PST
...
Psychologist Dr. Cheryl Kaiser says the bad weather combined with the bad economy and high unemployment, and the suicides could become more common.

 Kaiser said "I am always worried that when the economy is in an unstable type of position, that people will respond in very permanent ways."

Police acknowledge that the number of domestic dispute calls has increased greatly, and officers are being warned about the danger to themselves and the public.

Dougherty County Police Chief Don Cheek said "When you've got tough economic times, you've got bad weather, you've got a number of external factors, yes it's something we try to make our officers very, very aware of."

There are warning signs that people are having suicidal thoughts.

Kaiser said "If someone starts to withdraw or they are expressing concerns of hopelessness or helplessness, those are some of the most important signs of suicidality if someone is depressed."

Suicides of young vets top those of active-duty troops
Gregg Zoroya, USA TODAY 11:17 a.m. EST January 10, 2014

Whatever torment has driven troops to commit suicide in historically high numbers is following them as they leave the service, according to data released by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Young veterans just out of the service and receiving health care from the government committed suicide at nearly three times the rate of active-duty troops in recent years, according to data released Thursday by the Department of Veterans Affairs.

VA officials say the data show that severe personal issues driving self-destructive tendencies for those in uniform follow them when they leave the military. The figures were released through a USA TODAY public records request.

"The rates ... are honestly alarming. This group of young veterans appears to be in some trouble," says Janet Kemp, head of the department's suicide prevention program.

The Army has struggled with suicide among active-duty troops more than other service branches during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the risk persists after soldiers return to civilian life.

Veterans ages 18-24 enrolled in the VA's health program killed themselves at a rate of 46 per 100,000 in 2009 and nearly 80 per 100,000 in 2011, the latest year of data available, according to the figures.

Non-veterans of the same age had a suicide rate during 2009 and 2010, the most recent data available, of about 20 per 100,000, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Pope: 'unjust' unemployment can mean sin, suicide

VATICAN CITY (AP) -- Pope Francis says that "unjust" social conditions like unemployment can lead to sin, financial ruin and even suicide.

Francis discussed three types of destitution - material, moral and spiritual - in his first message for Lent, the solemn period leading up to Holy Week and Easter, that was released Tuesday.

Moral destitution, he said, "consists of slavery to vice and sin" such as alcohol, drugs, gambling and pornography.

He noted that sometimes "unjust social conditions" like unemployment lead to this type of destitution by depriving people of the dignity of work and access to education and health care.

"In such cases, moral destitution can be considered impending suicide."

The pope has frequently railed about the excesses of capitalism and income disparity, and the Lenten document echoed that message.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Golden Gate Bridge hits milestone in 2013 with 46 suicides
By Alex Dobuzinskis

(Reuters) - San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge marked a milestone in 2013 as 46 people leaped to their deaths in what appears to be the deadliest year for suicides at the California landmark, a watchdog group said on Tuesday.

The Bridge Rail Foundation, which tracks fatalities at the 4,200-foot-long (1,280-meter) span, said the high number of suicides demonstrates the need for a safety net to be installed to make it more difficult for would-be jumpers to take their own lives there.
...
A spokeswoman for the Golden Gate Bridge Highway and Transportation District, Mary Currie, confirmed that 46 people had committed suicide at the bridge last year, the highest annual total since at least 2000, when she began keeping an unofficial count.

Currie said police officers or others had intervened to stop another 118 people from leaping off the span in 2013.

Whitmer said last year's suicide tally, up from 33 in 2012, was the "highest we can confirm" since the bridge was built in 1937, adding that the previous record was believed to be 40 or 41 in a single year. An analysis published by the San Francisco Chronicle found 40 suicides occurred at the Golden Gate in 1977.

Suicide is now one of the top ten causes of death AND White middle age men in the U.S. are killing themselves:

http://economiccrisis.us/2010/08/rising-suicide-rate-worldwide-linked-economic-crisis-expert/
Rising suicide rate worldwide linked to economic crisis, experts say - Aug 2010
...
Mental health experts say the sour economy has turned what usually manifests as seasonal blues into a full-blown crisis. The fear of losing one’s job and pressures caused by a downturn in business, demotion or pension plan cutbacks can be bad for mental health and therefore increase suicide risk.
...

Japan is already home to one of the highest rates of suicide in the industrialised world, with an estimated 30,000 killing themselves every year. Amid deepening fears of a global recession, the rate is expected to surge even higher, fuelled by the growing prospect of job losses, decreased financial security and a rise in social dissatisfaction.

A recent study from Flinders University in Australia concluded that the suicide rate amongst Australian farmers was around 50%  higher than the rest of the population. “Relationships are one of the greatest supports for suicidal people,” Laura Kennan, Australian expert say. And finances have an impact on relationships.”

In the US, Men and women between 45 and 54 years old have the highest suicide rates in the country among nine different age groups as economy tanks and GOP blocks jobless benefits.

Women seek help for suicidal thoughts more often than men and added that “acknowledging the problem” was a crucial step to getting help.

But while suicides increased slightly in 2006 and 2007 across the United States, researchers noted suicide rates for people in their 40s and 50s have been steadily growing over the last decade.

Greece: Depression And Suicide Rate Rising In Face Of Economic Crisis, National Shame
Unemployment, economic hardship, and the shame of being considered Europe’s black sheep – the Greek have never been so dispirited. And the number of cases of clinical depression and suicides is soaring.

While the rest of Europe may be tormented by the thought of having to cough up ever more money to bail out Athens, the once carefree Greeks are getting more depressed by the day. Psychiatrists say that the economic crisis has triggered a 25 to 30% increase in the number of patients seeking their help.

Why the Happiest States Have the Highest Suicide Rates

Economists from the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, the University of Warwick in England and Hamilton College in New York examined life satisfaction scores provided by 2.3 million Americans state by state, and comparing these with state suicide rates.

Utah, for example, ranks highest in life satisfaction — but also has the ninth highest suicide rate in the U.S.
The No. 2 happiest state is Hawaii, which comes in fifth for suicides.

New York, in contrast, comes in 45th in life satisfaction but has America's lowest suicide rate.

Suicide rate is slowly rising
April 13, 2011 |By Don Sapatkin, Inquirer Staff Writer
...
societal trends are well-known:

elderly people commit suicide at rates that are 50 percent higher than young people,
whites nearly three times more than blacks,
men nearly four times more than women
...
The difference represents only a few thousand deaths nationwide, adding up to a change in rate from 10.9 per 100,000 population (in 2004, 2005, 2006) to 11.7 per 100,000 (in 2009, based on very preliminary data).
But that was enough to move suicide into the list of top 10 killers,
down from No. 11 (blood infections) for the first time since classifications changed in 1999.
...

Perhaps the most dramatic trend is not new but has now continued to increase for a decade:

The suicide rate among ages 45 to 64 grew 28 percent between 1999 and 2009, surpassing what for years was the most suicide-prone demographic, the elderly.

Unemployment and financial anxieties could play a role [duhh] . And they tend to go along with factors such as substance abuse and family problems that also are known to affect suicide.



People would rather kill themselves then vote 3rd parties and fix things.

New York • Americans are living longer than ever before, according to a new government report filled mostly with good news. U.S. life expectancy inched up again and death rates fell.
 
Rates also fell for most of the leading causes of death with one exception — the suicide rate reached its highest point in 25 years. That figure has been increasing since 2000 and "it’s really hard to say why," said Robert Anderson, who oversees the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control branch that issued the report Wednesday.

Colombian Archbishop Turns to Exorcism to Combat Suicide Increase
by Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D.  14 Nov 2014, 8:44 AM PDT

Archbishop Flavio Calle Zapata, of Ibagué, Colombia, has instructed local parishes to offer an exorcism prayer because of the alarming increase in suicides in his archdiocese.

During the year 2014, seventy people have committed suicide in the region, and violence has also been on the rise.

Last Sunday, the archdiocese sponsored a “day of exorcism.” The Archbishop said that in today’s world “there is a culture of permissiveness” and what disturbs us “is that Satanism has also spread among our young people.”

The Archbishop said that “in all the churches of the archdiocese of Ibagué and the diocese of Espinal, the prayer of Pope Leo XIII has been recited, asking St. Michael the Archangel to defend families and young people from demonic temptations and attacks on life.”

Pope Francis has spoken out frequently about the devil, insisting that he is “not a myth” and that “we have to fights him.”

Tahoe's quote.Pope Francis has spoken out frequently about the devil, insisting that he is “not a myth” and that “we have to fights him.”

 He is not a myth, but no horns and a tail. Plenty of titles, suit and tie, Masquerades and a line of Sh**t that would sink a ship.
 Rolling stone song, a" man of wealth and fame".
 I respect the fact the pope admits evil exists, being up front he is well aware as to spearheads the abomination but as any other position of high profile he will not , therefor ( just in my opinion ), he is playing "A" political.
P.S.. No offense meant to Catholics, it just irritates me the Vatican has a mile of secret books, scrolls, records, why a secret-eyes only?
 I mention this simply because secret society's are mentioned daily, this kinda reminds me of secrets.
 What the heck didn't the Christ want us to know, or was it the circle of holy men.  People have said it is to preserve them, that's a line of BS, with today's technology they could be photoed and distributed to the peons without being blemished.
 They won't be.................Sorry off track a tad- But have you folks ever wondered why?

U.S. Suicides Hit Highest Rate in 25 Years
But life expectancy reaches an all-time high at 78.8 years.
By Casey Leins

Oct. 8, 2014 | 3:54 p.m. EDT

“We continue to follow the pattern that we have been seeing for a few decades, where life expectancy is gradually increasing and death rates from the leading causes of death are decreasing,” Elizabeth Arias, a CDC demographer told Bloomberg News.

Despite these promising findings, researchers found the rate for suicide increased 2.4 percent. This is the highest it’s been in more than 25 years, The Associated Press reported. The suicide rate is now 12.6 suicide deaths per 100,000 Americans, which is close to the rate of 12.8 in 1987.
...
Some research indicates that suicide rates increase during tough economic times, yet the report showed increases in suicides before, during and after the 2007-2009 recession, said the AP
...
Out of all the top ten causes of death, which remained the same from 2011 the 2012, suicide was the only one that increased. Cancer, chronic lower respiratory disease, stroke, diabetes, influenza and kidney disease all dropped. The death rates for unintentional injuries remained the same

U.S. Suicides Hit Highest Rate in 25 Years
But life expectancy reaches an all-time high at 78.8 years.
By Casey Leins

Oct. 8, 2014 | 3:54 p.m. EDT

“We continue to follow the pattern that we have been seeing for a few decades, where life expectancy is gradually increasing and death rates from the leading causes of death are decreasing,” Elizabeth Arias, a CDC demographer told Bloomberg News.

Despite these promising findings, researchers found the rate for suicide increased 2.4 percent. This is the highest it’s been in more than 25 years, The Associated Press reported. The suicide rate is now 12.6 suicide deaths per 100,000 Americans, which is close to the rate of 12.8 in 1987.
...
Some research indicates that suicide rates increase during tough economic times, yet the report showed increases in suicides before, during and after the 2007-2009 recession, said the AP
...
Out of all the top ten causes of death, which remained the same from 2011 the 2012, suicide was the only one that increased. Cancer, chronic lower respiratory disease, stroke, diabetes, influenza and kidney disease all dropped. The death rates for unintentional injuries remained the same
...

'The boys are dead and so am I': Chilling last text husband sent his estranged wife the day he shot dead their two sons, aged 2 and 7, before killing himself

Ashley Deane's sons Austin, 2, and Jacob, 7, were shot in a murder-suicide
Ashley, 28, and husband Robertson White Deane, 36, had recently separated and she was living with the boys at her grandfather's house
On November 8, 2014, she dropped the boys off with their father to spend a weekend with a girlfriend in Sacramento
While shopping in an Ikea, she got a text message from her estranged husband saying the boys were dead 
Ashley is now speaking out to raise awareness of depression, which her husband suffered from

Eight months after losing her husband and two young sons in a murder-suicide, a Nevada mother is speaking out about the afternoon that changed her life forever.

The last time Ashley Deane, 28, saw her seven-year-old son Jacob and two-year-old son Austin was November 8, 2014, when she dropped the boys off with their father for the weekend.

Ashley and Robertson White Deane, 36, had decided to separate, and she had been living with the boys at her grandfather's house for the previous four days.

'I could hear the boys playing inside' Ashley tells the Reno Gazette-Journal. 'I didn't want to upset them with leaving so I didn't say goodbye.'

....

While Ashley gave her husband a hug before leaving, she says that they got into an argument over text message as she drove away for a weekend with a girlfriend in Sacramento.

As their conversation turned more and more heated, Ashley grew worried about her husband and called her mom to go over to the house and check on the boys.

Then she put down her phone and ignored a text message from Rob. She was in an Ikea in Sacramento eight minutes later when she finally picked up her phone and saw the message, which read: 'The boys are dead and so am I

...
'It was 911 in Sacramento so they were trying to connect me to Reno but it was all so confusing.'

By the time police showed up at the Deane family home just after 4pm, it was too late.

The two boys were found shot to death in the bathroom.

In the master bedroom, their father's body was laying on the ground two feet away from a silver revolver.

All three suffered single gunshot wounds to the head.
...

  PICTURE FROM THE ARTICLE.....

  If a person commits suicide, that is their decision.  But why do they kill their beautiful children?

We don't know the nature of the heated conversation. Careless words spoken at an inopportune time can kill people.

Somebody that's suicidal is usually in a deep state of despair coupled with anger. They have been robbed of all hope and they perceive no reason to be here. Rational thoughts have been replaced with flaring emotions.

No mystery to anybody that has been there in their life. Easy to see in hindsight. Impossible to see while in the middle of it.

I dispute this bogus study.

These men and women coming home from 2,3,4, tours of duty [hell!], can not cope with all of the Death, Horror, Destruction; and the fact that they have killed innocent men, women and children---and this haunts them deep in their minds and then they end this suffering, by suicide.

 If our young men and women were not subjected to this moral conflict: Well they would still be alive: just as those that are dead from illegal wars.
The system is 'Rigged' for all Folks to contemplate/and/commit Suicide! [Wars do it; and Pharma Drugs do it; and Schools teach how to do it!]

The New World Nazis Love Death and Not life: Thus Suicide is an easy way out for MURDER at the hands of KILLER Rat Maggot Nazis!

Brain Waves are being affected by
HAARP                                          1hr Theta Binaural Beat Session (7hz) ~ Pure  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66tq9xji0xA

http://www.haarp.net/mindcontrol.htm

earth is wrapped in a donut shaped magnetic field. Circular lines of flux continuously descend into the North Pole and emerge from the South Pole. The ionosphere, an electromagnetic-wave conductor, 100 kms above the earth, consists of a layer of electrically charged particles acting as a shield from solar winds. Natural waves are related to the electrical activity in the atmosphere and are thought to be caused by multiple lightning storms. Collectively, these waves are called ‘The Schumann Resonance´, the current strongest at 7.8 Hz. These are quasi-standing extremely low frequency (ELF) waves that naturally exist in the earth´s ‘electromagnetic´ cavity, the space between the ground and the ionosphere. These ‘earth brainwaves´ are identical to the spectrum of our brainwaves.

(1 hertz = 1 cycle per second, 1 Khz = 1000, 1 Mhz =1 million. A 1 Hertz wave is 186,000 miles long, 10 Hz is 18,600 miles. Radio-waves move at the speed of light.)

The Creator designed living beings to resonate to this natural frequency pulsation in order to evolve harmoniously. The ionosphere is being manipulated by US govt. scientists using an Alaskan transmitter called HAARP, (High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) which sends focused radiated power to heat up sections of the ionosphere, which bounces power down again. ELF waves from HAARP when targeted on areas can weather-engineer and create mood changes affecting millions. The intended wattage is 1,700 billion watts of power. A former govt. insider deduced they want to flip the world upside down. 64 elements in the ground modulate, with variation, the geomagnetic waves naturally coming from the ground.

n 1963 Dr Robert Becker explored effects of external magnetic-fields on brainwaves showing a relationship between psychiatric admissions and solar magnetic storms. He exposed volunteers to pulsed magnetic-fields similar to magnetic-storms, and found a similar response. US 60 Hz electric power ELF waves vibrate at the same frequency as the human brain. UK 50 Hz electricity emissions depress the thyroid.

Dr Andrija Puharich in the 50´s/60´s, found clairvoyant´s brainwaves became 8 Hz when their powers were operative. He saw an Indian Yogi in 1956 controlling his brainwaves, deliberately shifting his consciousness from one level to another. Puharich trained people with bio-feedback to do this consciously, making 8 Hz waves. A healer made 8 Hz waves pass into a patient, healing their heart trouble, her brain emitting 8 Hz . One person emitting a certain frequency can make another also resonate to the same frequency.

Our brains are extremely vulnerable to any technology which sends out ELF waves, because they immediately start resonating to the outside signal by a kind of tuning-fork effect. Puharich experimented discovering 7.83 Hz (earth´s pulse rate) made a person ‘feel good´ producing an altered-state. 10.80 Hz causes riotious behaviour and 6.6 Hz causes depression. Puharich made ELF waves change RNA and DNA, breaking hydrogen bonds to make a person have a higher vibratory rate. He wanted to go beyond the psychic 8 Hz brainwave and attract psi phenomena. James Hurtak, who once worked for Puharich, also wrote in his book The Keys of Enoch that ultra-violet caused hydrogen bonds to break and this raised the vibratory rate.

Puharich presented the mental effects of ELF waves to military leaders but they would not believe him. He gave this information to certain dignitaries of other Western nations. The US govt burned down his home in New York to shut him up and he fled to Mexico. However Russians discovered which ELF frequencies did what to the human brain and began zapping the US Embassy in Moscow on 4 July 1976 with electromagnetic-waves, varying the signal, including focusing on 10 Hz. (10 Hz puts people into a hypnotic state, Russians and North Koreans use this in portable mind-control machines to extract confessions.

Found also in an American church to help the congregation believe!) This Russian "Woodpecker" signal was traveling across the world from a transmitter near Kiev. The US Air Force identified 5 different frequencies in this compound harmonic Woodpecker was sending through the earth and atmosphere. Nikola Tesla revealed in 1901 power could be transmitted through the ground using ELF waves. Nothing stops or weakens these signals. The Russians retrieved Tesla´s papers when they were returned to Yugoslavia after his death.

Economics isn't necessarily a factor. There are miserable rich people and content, happy poor people.

Some of the most robust people see themselves as fulfilling an important, meaningful purpose higher than themselves.

Another influence is busyness. If, in the midwest, people have time to reflect, it could be a good thing for them or a bad thing for them, depending on the person.

Generally, the east coast city lifestyle keeps people so jammed up with tasks that they don't have time to reflect. They're the ones that quickly call independent researchers “conspiracy theorists” because not everybody has time to just drop everything, go read an entire encyclopedia, and get back to you on that. This, incidentally, is one of the military's ways of dealing with suicide. Unfortunately the technique of distraction has a shelf life. It deals with the symptom, but not the cause.

Then there's the spiritual side of it. I'm hearing more stories these days of people that were close to doing this seeing things that could not be explained...

When I look at that part of the country, there's something weird about the 4 corners area. Bizarreness in Denver, Roswell aliens, Burning Man festivals, Vegas (self proclaimed “Sin City”), stories of archaeological finds that get memory-holed. Phil Schnieder and Jordan Maxwell both having an encounter with something in that area identified as evil. There was a guy that showed up on this forum a couple of years ago talking about something down the holes in the desert.

I don't see that particular brand of weirdness toward the east coast.

What Svali says resonates with me.  Myself and folks I expose to this information we talk about on alternative media have trouble dealing with the betrayal etc.. I know a few people whole have gone bonkers and some take their own lives over the mess.
Belonging to this forum is real helpful as well as faith and a relationship with God.
Folks are slowly able to come to grips with our collective situation and some can't handle reality.

Chapter Eleven: Suicidal Programming

I have decided to write an entire chapter about suicidal programming, since it is often the most dangerous programming that the survivor will face during their healing process. ALL ILLUMINATI SURVIVORS WILL HAVE SUICIDAL PROGRAMMING PROTECTING THEIR SYSTEMS. I emphasized this to also reiterate the need for good therapy and a strong support system for the survivor.

The Illuminati know and realize that with time, individuals in their group may start to question what they are doing. Or they may become disenchanted with their role. They may even desire to leave the group or try to dismantle their own programming.

The trainers are well aware of this possibility and to prevent this, will always program in suicidality. The suicidality, or suicidal programming, may surround one or more systems internally. It may be layered into more than one system.

From earliest childhood, survivors have been conditioned to believe that they would rather die than leave their “family” (the Illuminati group). This is the core, or basis of suicidal programming. It will be closely linked to loyalty to one’s family as well as the group (remember, this is a generational group and leaving it may mean giving up contact with one’s parents, spouse, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins and children, as well as close friends). These people will all try to contact the survivor, and try to draw them back into the cult, asking “don’t you love us anymore?”, or even becoming accusatory and hostile if the survivor does not respond the way they wish. The survivor will be told that they are “crazy”. Or delusional. That their family loves them and would never be part of a cult. The family members will all still be amnesic, unless something happens to trigger their own memories.

One of the most frequent suicidal programming sequences placed internally will be “come back or die ” programming. A family member may activate it by telling the survivor that they are missed and their family wants to see them. If the survivor fails to return, the programming will start running. It can only be deactivated by a code word from the person’s trainer or cult contact person. This ensures that they will recontact. If the survivor tries to break this programming, they will need assistance, both internal and external, for safety.

Hospitalization may be needed in a safe facility that understands DID and programming, as well as suicidality, as the alters inside will begin fighting if the person tries to break the programming. They have been programmed to commit suicide, or be shattered internally, or at the very least, severely punished, and are afraid of the repercussions of not obeying. The survivor will need to get to know these internal alters, and reassure them that they no longer need to do their jobs.

Chronometric suicidal programming is another type placed within. This does not need contact with family members to activate. In fact, it is activated automatically after a certain amount of time WITHOUT cult contact. Controller alters and/or punishing alters will have been programmed that if a certain period of time goes without contact with the trainer, they are to commit suicide. They will be told that the only way to prevent this is recontact with the trainer, who knows a command code to halt the program. The time interval may be anywhere from three months to nine months, each system is different. Call back programming may have this type of programming as a back up, to ensure that it is followed through on.

Systems layered programming is a particularly complex form of suicide programming where several systems (up to six at a time), are programmed to fire off suicide programming simultaneously. This always needs hospitalization for the survivor’s safety.

Honor/dishonor programming is common in military systems. In this, the military parts are told that an “honorable and courageous” soldier will take his life, rather than reveal secrets or leave his unit.

“No tell” programming will often be reinforced by suicidal programming.

Access denied programming, which prevents unauthorized access both externally and internally, will often be reinforced by either or both suicidal/homicidal programming.

Almost all suicidal programming is put in place to either ensure continued obedience to the cult’s agenda; to ensure regular recontact; or prevent the individual or an outside person from accessing the person’s system without authorization (i.e. the correct access codes, which the trainers are careful to use at the beginning of each session). It will frequently block therapy, as the survivor will be terrified, and rightly so, of dying if they reveal their internal world, or disclose their history.

Suggestions:First, both the survivor and the therapist need to find out what suicide programming is present (it’s a safe bet it’s there, no need to ask IF it is present). Internal communication, and finding out which alters or fragments hold suicide programming will be important. Physical safety, whether with a safe outside person, or inpatient hospitalization, while working on suicide programming is extremely important, as this programming may either drive the survivor to self destructive behavior, or back to the cult. Dealing with suicide programming assumes that the survivor and therapist have initiated good system communication internally. This is extremely important, since the survivor will need cooperation inside with dismantling suicidality.

Letting alters inside know that they no longer have to do their job, that they can change, may help. Reality orientation, letting them know that if they kill the body, that they will die, may also help (many times, these parts have been deceived into believing that they themselves will not die, if they do their jobs. This means they need to hear the truth). Having controller alters, high alters with pull inside the system, agree to help the therapist dismantle the programming will help. But be aware that SOME INTERNAL SUICIDE SEQUENCES WILL BE PUT IN THAT EVEN CONTROLLERS CANNOT DISMANTLE. Creating a safety committee inside whose main job is to keep the body safe and ask for help if suicidal programming begins to kick in, BEFORE ACTING OUT OCCURS, will also help tremendously.

U.S. Suicide Rate Surges to a 30-Year High

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/22/health/us-suicide-rate-surges-to-a-30-year-high.html?_r=1

WASHINGTON — Suicide in the United States has surged to the highest levels in nearly 30 years, a federal data analysis has found, with increases in every age group except older adults. The rise was particularly steep for women. It was also substantial among middle-aged Americans, sending a signal of deep anguish from a group whose suicide rates had been stable or falling since the 1950s.

The suicide rate for middle-aged women, ages 45 to 64, jumped by 63 percent over the period of the study, while it rose by 43 percent for men in that age range, the sharpest increase for males of any age. The overall suicide rate rose by 24 percent from 1999 to 2014, according to the National Center for Health Statistics, which released the study on Friday.
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5
