According to AFSP, there are nearly 45,000 suicides every year in the US. Shocking. I was saddened to hear of the deaths of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain. RIP. It illustrates that success is not immune to depression. We all need to be more aware of our friends who are suffering— Bryan Cranston (@BryanCranston) June 8, 2018

Anthony Bourdain, 61 was very dear to me. He was an educator, he was such a foodie who shared his travels, wisdom and loved him some Foxy Brown.— Pam Grier Ph.D (@PamGrier) June 8, 2018
To his family, Peace be still.

Staggeringly sad news about Anthony Bourdain. May he rest in peace. The fact that he seemed to live such a fulll life is a tragic reminder that nobody is immune from the effects of mental health. Seek help if you need it, seek support. It gets better and you are not alone.— Danny O'Dwyer (@dannyodwyer) June 8, 2018

I feel this death in my bones. @Bourdain had what I’d call a generous curiosity about the world, guiding audiences through it with an awe, respect, and humor that are all too uncommon. Also rare: he knew what he didn’t know. I never knew him in person. I will miss him terribly.— Jamil Smith (@JamilSmith) June 8, 2018

So sad to hear that Anthony Bourdain has died by suicide, I'm a big fan of his TV show, books & restaurants too...just days after Kate Spade too, this is NOT a good trend & we must really do more to learn about depression/mental illness— Timothy Sykes (@timothysykes) June 8, 2018
