The tragic suicide of celebrity fashion designer Kate Spade followed by chef and TV host Anthony Bourdain seems to have created a ripple effect across the valley, according to experts.

If you or someone you know needs help, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

There is also a stigma that surrounds the topics of depression and anxiety that makes it hard for people suffering from mental illness to talk about.

Mental illness tends to be blamed more than it should.

"More people suffer from mental health issues than we may realize but no one should ever feel ashamed to reach out for support", said Spade in a statement.

Bakersfield resident Jane Gardner calls herself a "survivor" of her dad's suicide.

Natrona County Suicide Task Force's Felicia Cummings added to the conversation, "we offer suicide prevention awareness trainings so that anybody in the community, all the way up to professionals and clinical, know how to handle suicides".

According to a new CDC report, in 2016, almost 45,000 Americans age 10 or older took their own lives. In the span of 15 years, 13 physicians - majority on faculty at the academic medical center - took their lives, she said.

Andy - who was living apart from Kate at the time of her death - said: "Kate was the most attractive woman in the world".

Several high-profile suicides have been the focus of a national conversation, and recent numbers show that the rate in New Hampshire is up almost 50 percent over the past 20 years.

I mean, could you imagine if they burst into Barack Obama's lawyer's office? "Didn't know Manafort was the head of the Mob". Even though she did not believe Manafort posed a violent threat, she said he met the legal requirement regardless.

Mental health does not encompass suicidal thoughts or depression but overall happiness and joy in a person.

Men die by suicide 3.53 x more often than women. The AFSP advocates were in Washington, D.C. for four days to meet with their members of Congress to encourage them to invest in mental health and suicide prevention.

Data show that increased investment makes a difference, she said, and pointed to the history of HIV/AIDS as an example.

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S.

But people are talking about suicide prevention - which Zimmerman said can be helpful.

"The details can fill in the picture", she said.

"I think when people are advocating and they're showing that pain, they're not glamorizing it", said Nicole Zimmerman, program coordinator at Alliance for Youth. But how might the landscape look for suicide in our country if we gave more to this cause of death, too?

"Kate's suicide has been extremely heartbreaking and has left some friends confused because she kept a happy persona in public for so long", the source said.

"Being there and available to listen is one of the most important things".
