Recent CDC report finds rates increasing

US suicide rate on rise: health agency Suicide Rates Increase in Nearly All States

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death and is one of just three leading causes that are on the rise. Validating that someone is having these thoughts, even if we're not sure they are, may provide her or him with a sense of relief, and create an opportunity to talk more freely. While we focus on the mental health of people who take their lives, the CDC found that over half of suicides had no known mental illness.

She added that you should directly ask someone if they are considering suicide, don't beat around the bush.

Montana had the highest per-capita suicide rate and saw a 38 percent increase since 1999.

Phrases that may be meant to comfort such as, "They're in a better place now", or "They're no longer hurting", can also hurt suicide loss survivors, who might wonder, Schnell said, "Wasn't the place where we are good enough?"

I disagree. Those facts may indeed be part of the record, and yes, news organizations generally do report on the causes of death.

The key is to think of suicide as a public health issue, much like diseases such as AIDS or cancer, said Christine Moutier, the chief medical officer at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

The CDC, the top USA public health agency, said individual states need to do more to boost suicide prevention "and address the range of factors contributing to suicide". Often. And while suicide rates continue to climb at an alarming pace, the vast majority of people do not turn to suicide when faced with a problem, no matter how devastating or overwhelming.

The traumatic experience turned Smith into a suicide prevention advocate and led her into a career with OSF HealthCare as a behavioral health navigator. Based on reports, we understand that Mr. Bourdain died by suicide.

"Our mental health systems are just really struggling across the country", Prof Cerel says.

Scientists are making progress in identifying ways of predicting suicide risk more precisely, including biomarkers that could indicate whether someone is more likely to attempt it, said Jane Pearson, chairwoman of the National Institute of Mental Health's suicide research consortium.

Dr. Graham Spruiell, professor in clinical psychiatry, says the problem may continue. "But homicides still get more attention".

Research from the CDC shows there's a disproportionate rate of men committing suicide compared with women; with 32.8 per every 100,000 men 65 and older versus 5.2 per every 100,000 women 65 and over. They don't want to get near it or around it because it's taboo, and it's not going to happen to me.

"In the aftermath of these highly visible tragedies, let's resolve not to sit back".

"With recent high profile deaths by suicide, this is a time to stand together and resolve to do more".

Olivia Munn and Chrissy Teigen have opened up about their mental health struggles to fans on social media.

With other community advocates, Smith works to promote suicide-safer communities and schools.

"It's usually a confluence of factors", said Jerry Reed, a member of the executive committee of the Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention.

An average of eight children in the state up to age 14 die by suicide a year, according to a report by the Louisiana Child Death Panel Review.

"These clear steps can lower the national suicide rate", the statement said.
