ABC News article reports that suicide is on the increase in rural America–nowhere so much as in western mountain states like Idaho, Wyoming and New Mexico. Mental health professionals attribute it in part to cutbacks in Medicaid funding, to the recession and to the culture of the rural West. http://bit.ly/vgRe4I
