today fashion designer kate spade will be laid to rest. her ownear-old took life earlier this month inside her new york city apartment. her funeral will be held in her hometown of kansas city. her death rocked the entire country. yesterday our own melissa mollet spoke with joshua winer about the impacts of suicide and how to talk to your family about it >> the reason suicides of kate spade and anthony bourdain are tragic, they bothin left b young children. sadly, each year, 7,000 to u.s.0 children in the
experience the suicide of a parent. any parenta t death isumatic for a child. but when a parent dies from suicide, it can make the grieving process more challenging. >> dr. joshua winer joins us to talk abouthis rarely discussed topic very top of mind these da. a lot of people feel like suicide, when you talk about it, how can they d at? what do you think about that? >> they say it's such a sacfish on the part of that parent. let me tell you what i've learned over my years and my practice. sadly having seen some people. before ty made a suicide attempt and before they completed suicide, what i think people should understand is that for these people, it's faulty thinking. but these people believe that they're actually doing theirhe family and kids a favor by killing themselves. they feel like, you know what, yes, it's going to be tragic and difficult for my child or other family members, but over
the period of time over the course of the year, they will get over the loss of me. but my life and me being around and continuing to cause problems in their belief will be more damaging to the child and the family than their dying. >> i would imagine, guilt is a feelint the children would experience, that people surrounding this person who committed suicide would experience. with that deal portion of things when you're the person left behind? >> it is so challenging because when you think about it, people do g noterally feel guilty for causes of death that are natural or even caraccidents. they don't blame themselves for their father dying in a carde ac. but for kids and other family members, they'll feel guilty. what did i do? what did i not do? what could i have said? what signs did i miss? what people need to understand when they're dealing with this, you are never responsible for the full actions of somebody else. no idy perfect. we all make mistakes in
relationshpls. but some p have to realize that other people are responsible for their actions. u cannot control the actions of other people. you can just do the best you can and you have to recognize and nobody is perfect. this is really hard and it could take years and maybe never get over. to get past. >> the long-term effects of suichee in children they are the ones remaining. >> there aren't that many studies on this topic. there has been some look at this. and wh scary and unfortunate is that kids of pents who hav committed suicide are two to three times more likely to thigis, why?mit suicide one theory iste that wr underlying psychopathology or illness going on in the parent may be going on in the child. the other thing is, for the person when they may maybe later
experience a pblem, they think this was a solution or answer my dad did, my mom did. maybe i could consider this myself. once you pass that ruin con in your brain, once you go to that point, that's a scary point and increases the likelihood that you may make a suicide attempt. >>or any advice viewers regarding this in general? >> i think the main thing is that if you have a friend or a family member who has had somebody die from suicide, don't ignore them. you may feel uncomfortable talking about this. it's a taboo topic. fert comle bringing it up. you are not going to create problems. one of the cllenges with grief, these people ostracize themselves or ostracized by friends or family members. if this happened in your family, be quick to get therapy. even family thery. because this is a very long difficult process to go through.
at children's national, stronger is caring for a baby's heart in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. and a future when prenatal pediatrics leads to healthier children. it's being the number one newborn intensive care unit in the country. and giving parents peace of mind. it's less recovering in our bed, and more jumping on yours. stronger is standing out and standing proud. because we don't just want your kids to grow up. we want them to grow up stronger.
