The rate of suicide deaths in the United States increased by 25 percent over the past two decades, and 30 states have seen their suicide rates climb by almost 30 percent, according to a report released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

"I think it's possible that we have some underrecognition of mental health conditions in our data, both because conditions haven't been formally diagnosed and because those left behind might not have been aware of the diagnosis", Schuchat said.

The CDC said suicide rates in the USA increased more than 30 per cent between 1999 and 2016.

"Those amusing cat videos can't keep someone alive, but they can calm people down to then use other coping strategies", she says. Variation in suicide rates within the USA supports this conclusion. Two Minnesota neighbors - North Dakota and South Dakota - saw even greater increases, as did New Hampshire, Kansas, Vermont, and Idaho. Only Nevada did not record a rise.

While the CDC report notes that guns are the most common method for these suicides - accounting for about half of all cases - it fails to underscore the extent to which these alarming rates may be attributable to the country's utter saturation with civilian firearms.

While the study emphasizes the need for more prevention resources, predicting suicides can be hard. "We have to change culture around mental health, giving help and support", said Allen.

Recommendations include comprehensive public health approach to suicide prevention, which requires coordination from every sector of society from the government to community organizations.

Moutier of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, said that suicides can be "contagious" - hearing about one may make others who are already at risk turn to self-harm.

Oregon's rate climbed to 17.8 suicide deaths per 100,000. "Other problems often contribute to suicide, such as those related to relationships, substance use, physical health, and job, money, legal, or housing stress".

And the controversial Netflix series "13 Reasons Why", which follows a high school girl who takes her own life after being bullied and sexually assaulted, has sparked discussion about the alarming rates of teen suicide, in particular, which has also seen a frightening increase. With Kate Spade's own tragic suicide just days prior, we asked experts why a celebrity might take their own life. Habitual users of opioids were twice as likely to attempt suicide as people who did not use them.

"Suicide is more than a mental health issue", Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the CDC, told reporters on Thursday. "The idea that suicide is not preventable is completely fallacious". Be there with them, and listen to them. 4.

"The data supports what we know about that notion", Gordon said.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness suggests removing means to suicide such as guns or pills; talking openly on the topic and asking a person if they are having thoughts of suicide; asking what you can do to help and then carefully listening to the answer.
