Holcomb Behavioral Health Systems Mental Health Services
Recently, several high-profile celebrities have succumbed to mental illnesses and taken their own lives. It is always devastating to hear about a well-known celebrity passing away by suicide, but there is a deeper issue that is illuminated by deaths like these that must be taken seriously.
Suicide Contagion is a process that mental health officials say can happen after a string of high-profile suicides, which causes an increase in suicide behaviors in the general public due to celebrity deaths.
For instance, in the four months after Robin Williams’ death, there was an almost 10% increase in suicides in the United States. (PLOS ONE Journal)
