"These findings are disturbing".

Both mental and physical health can play an important role, said Jennifer Siozos, chief transformation officer with health-care provider Terros Health. The other two top 10 causes of death that are on the rise are Alzheimer's disease and drug overdoses, she noted.

In 2016 alone, there were nearly 45,000 deaths from suicide.

"I know that men, in general, they have a sense of, 'I need to be the best. Why don't I have this?" he said. "He wasn't open to sharing what was really going on inside".

"He was very quiet, though". "If they did, we would all respond, but that isn't how it works".
