Il 30 aprile, Wynonna e Ashley Judd hanno annunciato che la loro madre, Naomi Judd, era morta. La tragica morte di Naomi a 76 anni ha sconvolto il mondo della musica. “Oggi, noi sorelle abbiamo vissuto una tragedia. Abbiamo perso la nostra bellissima madre a causa della malattia mentale”, hanno postato la coppia su Instagram. I fratelli hanno condiviso che stavano ancora cercando di venire a patti con la loro perdita improvvisa e inaspettata.

Naomi Judd's family don't want even more pain and anguish

Naomi Judd's family "filed for injunctive relief" to keep her death records sealed from public access. NBC News reported they were granted their wish after a judge decided that releasing the documents would result in "emotional distress, pain, and mental anguish." The death records included graphic photos, illustrations, and comprehensive details of Naomi's death and how she ended her life.

Given her depth of understanding of the subject, Naomi would likely support her family's desire to keep the records sealed. A study published in BMJ medical journal (via Heath Day) showed that reporting on high-profile suicides sparks "copycat" tragedies. The more details that are revealed, the higher the risk for "suicide contagion." When reports include the method used, it leads to a 30% average increase in deaths by the same means.

However, Naomi was aware of the importance of being open about mental health issues to help encourage struggling others to seek help. She told NBC News she joined forces with the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill and the Vanderbilt Psychiatric Hospital to remove mental health stigma. "There are almost 44 million people in America that experience mental illness in a given year," Naomi said. "If you've got a pulse, then you're fighting some battle, whether it's [depression], like 16 million people, or [anxiety], like 42 million people, or something else. And there's power in numbers [it means] you're not alone."
