Suicide Rates Increase in Nearly All States

US suicide rate on rise: health agency

The report showed a fourfold difference in state suicide rates, ranging from 6.9 per 100,000 residents per year in Washington DC to 29.2 in Montana.

The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revealed fresh state-by-state statistics on suicide rates on Thursday showing that more Americans in every age group, from 10 to 75, are committing suicide.

She said hearing about one suicide may make others who are already at risk turn to self-harm.

Crisis lines around North America are seeing an increase in calls today, something Julia Payson says happens here too. In half the states, the agency found the rate rose more than 30 percent.

In the CDC report it says in 2016, almost 45-thousand Americans ages 10 or older died by suicide.

For those living anywhere else the International Association for Suicide Prevention and Befrienders Worldwide can provide contact details for suicide help.

Prevention efforts, often focused on mental health, could be broadened to focus on people undergoing life stresses like job losses or divorces, the CDC's Dr. Anne Schuchat said in a media briefing. Research found that firearms were the most common method of suicide by people both "with and without a known diagnosed mental illness".

CNN confirmed chef and television personality Anthony Bourdain died of a suicide, while working in France on an upcoming episode of his award-winning CNN series, "Parts Unknown". Suicide is the 10th-leading cause of death in the US, and rates have been climbing steadily for years.

Ask someone you are anxious about if they're thinking about suicide.

"That includes a professional to help them with their thoughts of suicide", Egan said.

As she was driving to work Friday, Buhse said, she heard three mentions of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline's number, which is 800-273-8255.

Nevada was the only state that didn't see an increase in its suicide rate during the study period, though the state has had a consistently high rate of suicide, the report found.

CDC is very good about aggressive over-diagnosis in some areas, e-cigarettes and pre-diabetes are prominent examples where they defied the science consensus to embrace the precautionary principle, so it is inconsistent to be urging caution about the role of mental health in suicides.

"We really have to focus on what's going on in people's lives that's driving so many to such desperate acts", said Woolf, who chronicled what has become known as America's "epidemic of despair" - rising death rates due to drug overdoses, suicide and diseases related to substance abuse - in a recent essay in the journal BMJ.

The most common method used to end one's life in the U.S. is by firearm.
