  • CDC: Suicide Rates Rising Across US

Suicide rates rose in almost every USA state from 1999 to 2016, with the rate spiking by more than 30 percent in half of the country, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported on Thursday.

If a person talks about taking their life or feeling hopeless or withdraws from social activities.

The suicide today of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain and the death earlier this week of fashion designer Kate Spade has sparked new discussions about depression and suicide.

"Research for many years and across social and health science fields has demonstrated a strong relationship between economic downturns and an increase in deaths due to suicide", Sarah Burgard an associate professor of sociology at the University of MI, explained in an email on Thursday. Those without a known mental health condition, according to the report, were more likely to be male and belong to a racial or ethnic minority.

Montana had the highest suicide rate, at 29.2 per 100,000 people per year, while the District of Columbia had the lowest, at 6.9 suicides per 100,000 people per year.

Rural states, she explained, are still recovering from economic downturns and residents tend to be more isolated, without access to proper care. During that time, the suicide rate went up 13 percent.

The rates also climbed among all age groups, except for people over the age of 74.

"The mental health system, in a lot of ways, can feel like the power has been taken away, so one of those values in peer support is instead of a power imbalance, you're talking to someone who is going to be there with you and not tell you how to live your life but to explore options", Stohlmann-Rainey said.


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.

Experts say it's important to have a conversation if you're concerned about someone.

The national attention following the suicides of Bourdain and Spade has meant an increase in calls to suicide hotlines like the one here in Philadelphia, which is staffed 24/7 by experts who can help you out in any crisis.

It's now sparking the important discussion about mental health. While the suicide rate increased in women, it's still 3 to 5 times higher in men.

In Missouri, the state has also struggled with funding for suicide prevention.

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

From 2007 to 2017, the number of suicides in Cuyahoga County has gradually increased, with some years being much worse than others, according to Hugh Shannon at the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office.

If you are in emotional distress or suicidal crisis, or know someone who might be, you can also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. "For celebrities, in particular, and those in the spotlight, there is an expectation that the general public has that because these individuals are successful and attractive, they likely do not or could never suffer from a mental or emotional disorder", Dr.
