  • CDC: US suicide rates have climbed dramatically

Hours after a medical examiner ruled Kate Spade's death a suicide by hanging, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a harrowing study revealing suicide rates are on the rise in almost every state.

The Associated Press Health & Science Department receives support from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Department of Science Education.

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. In addition, to better understand the circumstances surrounding suicide, they turned to more detailed information collected by 27 states on suicides that occurred in 2015.

Anne Shuchat M.D.is principal director at CDC. So, we would have to watch, especially with people on the Big Island who have lost their homes. "Essentially every age group other than those over 75".

Researchers found that more than half of people who died by suicide didn't have a known diagnosed mental health condition, despite previous studies showing 90% of individuals who died by suicide did. "Social and life and economic stressors are the ones that create the conditions for suicides to happen".

The report details a dramatic increase in incidents of suicide in Kansas, particularly among females.

Overall, the rate rose to 15.4 per 100,000 in 2014-2016 from 12.3 per 100,000 in 1999-2001.

"We know that prevention programs work and can be effective in reducing this tragedy", Shuchat said.

Although ADAMHS had not yet reviewed the CDC report and their public health recommendations, the organization advocates for community collaboration that creates a whole system of recovery care. Suicide deaths in Colorado saw a 34.1 increase during the years studied. Significant changes in behavior or affect may be warning signs as well.

Suicide is caused by many factors and each one is different. The report recommends that prevention efforts focus "further upstream" on stresses such as job loss or divorce.

"Suicide does tend to rise during the holidays or at least that's what some early reports said".

On one hand Brown said the series may have gotten some teens to speak out on suicide as an important issue and they may have shared experiences.

Doctors say there are warning signs a person needs immediate help. No one cares about me. "I need to rise above and be strong, '" Winter said. "If someone mentions those sorts of things, dig a little bit deeper". Men were also more likely to kill themselves than women in those month, comprising 52 out of the 60 cases. If you suspect someone of needing immediate help, call 911. It could be someone you are anxious about.

If this person talks or behaves in a way that makes you believe that he or she may try to attempt suicide, then get help from a trained professional as quickly as possible.
