Experts troubled by rise in boomer suicides

Suicide among baby boomers has run ahead of the national rate at every stage of their lives, and experts are worried that suicide among the elderly, already high, may double in the next 20 years.

They warn that despite many advances in understanding and responding to suicide risk factors among Americans of all ages, the nation's youth-oriented culture, lingering stigmas toward mental illness and the medical system itself leave aging boomers in greater danger.

Nice blog. I enjoyed reading it over. As a member of Gen-X (on the older end of it at 38) I am often amazed by the number fo ways the "boomer" generation has screwed up. I am also amazed at some of the amazing things the boomer generation has acheived.

I go back and forth between admiration and disgust.

Seeing Denniss Hopper telling boomers that its time to join the AARP is unforgiable.
