    So first it was Kate Spade, second Anthony Bourdain and now Jon Paul Steuer a few hours ago. It seems like it happens in threes. God bless them all and may they have the peace in heaven that they couldn't have here on earth.

    It's hard to say what's happening. It's often seen in developed nations, especially Japan. According to Human Geography, this is only the natural procession of development for society and the country. A good way to combat it would be to increase mental health funding, research and availability, but there's too many special interests involved to have that pop on the President's desk anytime soon.

    I have worked in mental health and it's a predictable event(most leave notes etc). I know that 34,000 a year die of suicide. We can do more as a community and as a society but unless we focus on mental health nothing will happen.

    We also need to be better people. We can't bank on splashing cash on mental health as the only thing.

    We drive people to do this, nothing else.
