Steven Dubovsky, chair of the UB Department of Psychiatry, is
quoted in an Associated Press article about a new report by
the Centers for Disease Control that shows the suicide rate among
middle-aged New Yorkers shot up 42 percent in a decade, far
outpacing the 28 percent increase seen among peers nationwide.
Several factors may be at play, he said, including tough economic
times and difficulty in getting mental health care. The article
appeared in news outlets throughout New York State, including the
New York Post, WXXA-TV in Albany, News 12
Brooklyn and the Utica Observer-Dispatch.
