David Spade donates $100000 to mental health charity after sister-in-law Kate's death

Tributes to chef and television personality Anthony Bourdain are placed outside Brasserie Les Halles in New York U.S

Have I tried committing suicide in my life? The upcoming 52-week lupus trial will evaluate both the 4-mg and 2-mg dose of the drug, which is also being tested for atopic dermatitis, the article reported.

The same week that Spade and Bourdain killed themselves, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a study covering 1999-2016 showing that the suicide rate in the US has been increasing for years in almost all states and across demographic lines. "My regrets will be more along the lines of a sad list of people hurt, people let down, assets wasted and advantages squandered". Many may not understand... but I do, and this morning I have the deepest gratitude that I pulled through. The report indicates that suicide rates in the USA have increased almost 30 percent since 1999.

"Suicidologists regularly state that suicide is not caused by a single factor; however, suicide prevention is often oriented toward mental health conditions alone with regard to downstream identification of suicidal persons, treatment of mental health conditions, and prevention of reattempts".

David Spade has donated $100,000 to the National Alliance on Mental Illness following the death of his late sister-in-law, Kate Spade. The Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute offers mental health first aid training for people who want to help those with a mental health problem and refer them to professional help.

In a nation that's become so highly partisan, it seems we've forgotten that we should be looking out for our fellow man-not just the ones who agree with us.

Fox's Ingraham calls for Trump to fire Pruitt: 'GOTTA GO'
Pruitt also heard from farmers during a two-hour visit to a Reliance farm that wasn't publicized and was closed to the public. Pruitt is serving @RealDonaldTrump's best interests", Iowa Republican Senator Joni Ernst wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.

"More people suffer from mental health issues than we may realize but no one should ever feel ashamed to reach out for support", Spade said. "We see these "echo suicides" where people who were already vulnerable get exposed to the loss of somebody that they really identified with and that increases their own risk on a temporary basis", he was quoted by YourCentralValley Online. She said they saw similar increases after actor and comedian Robin Williams ended his life in 2014 and after Chester Bennington, the former lead singer of Linkin Park and Stone Temple Pilots, died by suicide in 2017.

We can do that much, can't we?
