Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade's deaths are part of a growing problem in the US

BOURDAIN

A newly released report says suicide rates are up twenty-five percent over the past twenty years.

The CDC cites mental health problems as one of the common causes of suicide. "There are many different circumstances and factors that contribute to suicide". "What are we doing as a nation to help people to manage these things? The need for more research and a greater national investment in suicide prevention is clearer than ever", Moutier said in the statement. There were 44,965 suicide deaths in 2016, according to CDC data.

Only Nevada saw a decline - of 1 percent - for the overall period, though its rate remained higher than the national average. A significant number of people who died by suicide didn't have a known mental health condition, the study said.

Numerous factors seem to increase the risk of suicide, such as relationship problems, substance misuse, physical health challenges, financial issues or legal problems, the report found.

"None of this is surprising information, which is not to trivialize its importance".

"They can walk in and meet with a master's level clinician who can sit down with them and find out what is going on and try to get them help for that right now", says Karen Stafford.

There are several resources available in our area for those struggling with thoughts of suicide or mental health.

-Follow up to see how they're doing. Along with mental health training for police and correctional officers, the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services has pushed for education about removing prescription drugs from people's homes and reducing access to lethal weapons.

"So it's not just about firearms, it's also about other methods of suicide such as hanging, suffocation, poisoning and the like", she said.

Kaslow is particularly concerned about what's emerged with suicide among women.

"If you're anxious about a loved one, how do you begin that conversation?" "The conversation about firearms and suicide doesn't have to be a debate about the Second Amendment". The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention offers our condolences to his family, friends, and everyone touched by Bourdain.

With or without mental health conditions, people who commit suicide do so for a variety of reasons. "And there's good research to support that".

"These data should be a call to action for all states to intensify their focus on implementing suicide prevention policies and programs that have the strongest potential for helping save the most lives", he said. "There are some for youth, but they're very, very tiny", says Gebbia.

The series addresses a public health topic each month. Rates ranged from 6.9 per 100,000 in the District of Columbia to 29.2 per 100,000 in Montana.

NELL GREENFIELDBOYCE, BYLINE: Every year, tens of thousands of Americans kill themselves. It impacts middle-aged adults, older adults.

GREENFIELDBOYCE: Deborah Stone is a scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC study found, too, that suicide increased among all sexes, ages, races and ethnic groups.

The CDC said the 27 states represent almost half the USA population but can not be considered nationally representative.
