The recent suicide deaths of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain shocked the nation and calls and texts to crisis hotlines spiked dramatically. Carla Feagan fears an increase in copycat suicides citing the rise in deaths after Robin Williams suicide in 2014. Feagan says, “The time is now for people to release their shame, become vulnerable and speak openly and publicly about their depression and suicide attempts. It is with this sharing of these stories that will allow those who are thinking about suicide to understand they are not alone and they too can survive.”
