Editor’s note: Suicide is a public health crisis. We believe it is important to report on suicide, to name it, and to raise awareness about the issue. We do not, however, report the name of someone who has died by suicide without the express permission of the family. Some families choose to be named, while others still feel a stigma when death is by suicide. We respect their wishes in an attempt to do no harm as a journalism organization.
