How to get help for someone who might be suicidal

US suicide rates increased more than 25% since 1999, CDC says

These high-profile deaths come the same week the CDC reported suicide rates in the USA have risen almost 30 percent since 1999.

In 2016, 45,000 people died by suicide - marking a slight increase over the previous year - a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveals.

The analysis found that slightly more than half of people who had committed suicide did not have any known mental health condition.

Although there is no single cause for suicide, information from coroners' reports suggests numerous deaths followed relationship problems, substance use, and financial crises, according to the CDC.

Firearms were the most commonly reported method of suicides (48.5%), though decedents with known mental health conditions were less likely to die by firearm (40.6%) and more likely to use strangulation (31.3%) or poisoning (19.8%) than those without (26.9% and 10.4%, respectively). Finding economic circumstances was a major contributing factor, especially during the Great Recession (2008).

"Suicide can happen to anybody", Schuchat said, stressing that it's important to reach out when family and loves ones are dealing with life stresses like losing a job, ending a romantic relationship, or struggling with money.

"Those are the times to really support each other", Schuchat said.

Though suicide remains more common among men, rates of suicide by women, like Spade, rose at more than double the rate of increase seen in men.

Celebrity chef and beloved TV personality Anthony Bourdain was found dead on Friday, apparently by suicide, at age 61. It's widespread across the country, impacting every single age group and demographic in America. For support outside of the US, a worldwide directory of resources and global hotlines is provided by the global Association for Suicide Prevention. North Dakota saw the biggest increase as rates jumped 57.6 percent. Montana, Idaho, the Dakotas, and Wyoming all saw increases between 38 and 58 percent.

BuzzFeed Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith noted that Watkins' time as a reporter for his outlet was covered by the records seized. Wolfe, of Ellicott City, Maryland, has been arrested and is due in court Friday.

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

A range of strategies could help prevent suicides, from expanding access to mental and behavioral health care to improving education around individual coping skills and institutional supports, the report says.

Increasingly, suicide is being viewed not only as a mental health problem but a public health one. People can be isolated in rural areas, or they can find a protective community in small towns. It's important to keep in mind to remove access to firearms, medications, or any other potential tools they might use to harm themsevles.

If you or someone you know may be contemplating suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. All calls are confidential.
