Union City, CA
The Coroner’s Bureau of Alameda County deals with more about 120 suicides every year, according to the Union City Patch. In the first few months of 2012, one man jumped in front of a BART train, another hanged himself at a park, another jumped from an I-580 overpass, and a group of teenagers committed suicide together by standing in front of a train.
The threat of suicide in a loved one should not be ignored. It’s the 10th leading cause of death in the United States, and many who talk about it or threaten suicide often attempt it – and many of them are successful.

Help for Suicidal Tendencies
Because depression can end in suicide, it’s one of the most deadly mental health disorders. Do you see signs of depression in someone you care about? You might notice:
- Extreme changes in sleep patterns (sleeping too much or struggling with insomnia)
- Extreme changes in eating habits (binge eating or anorexic behaviors)
- An inability to experience joy
If your Union City loved one talks about death often, has a plan for committing suicide, or often comments on the worthlessness of living or seems hopeless, it can be a cry for help. Don’t ignore it.
