Ivanka Trump tweeted her condolences Tuesday on the death of fashion designer Kate Spade, asking those who might be "struggling with depression and contemplating suicide, please, please seek help."

"Kate Spade's tragic passing is a painful reminder that we never truly know another's pain or the burden they carry," Trump said in her post, which included a link to a national suicide hotline:

Spade, 55, who was known for her sleek handbags, was found hanged in the bedroom of her Park Avenue apartment Tuesday in an apparent suicide, New York City Police officials said.

Spade's body was found by a housekeeper not long after 10 a.m. ET, police told a news conference. Her husband and business partner, Andy Spade, was in the apartment at the time.

Their 13-year-old daughter was at school.

The police department's chief of detectives, Dermot Shea, said that while investigators were still in the early stages of their inquiry, evidence including the state of the apartment and the presence of a note pointed to "a tragic suicide."

It was not clear how long Spade had been dead. The medical examiner will perform an autopsy.
