Anthony Bourdain’s death inspires writer to pay for strangers’ mental health costs

After the death from suicide Thursday of chef and television personality Anthony Bourdain, Utah-based writer Nicole Cliffe put out an offer on her Twitter account: “If you’re putting off picking up your meds refill bc you can’t pay for it or you are behind in paying your sliding scale shrink and dodging them, tell me, we need you on this side of the ground,” she wrote.

The requests for help began to pour in, with hundreds of replies from people who said they didn’t have enough money to cover therapy or psychiatrist appointments, or were rationing out final pills in a prescription with no money to refill it.
