  • How to have tough conversations about mental health

In exactly half of USA states, the suicide rate increased more than 30 percent.

Suicide rates in the United States have surged by 30 percent in almost all states since 1999, indicating how it has become a major problem in the country. About 3 to 4 females per 100,000 died by suicide in Maryland during that period.

In 2016 alone, about 45,000 lives were lost to suicide.

Although suicide is often attributed exclusively to mental health conditions, it is rarely caused by a single factor, the researchers said.

"Suicide is 'multi-determined.' There's never just one reason", Julie Geddef of the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services said.

The CDC suggested a wide-ranging list of ways for communities to help those contemplating suicide.

On Thursday, the CDC released a report showing every state has seen an increase over the past two decades; every state except for Nevada. Research found that firearms were the most common method of suicide by people both "with and without a known diagnosed mental illness".

"But to make matters more troubling, while the numbers shot up, the federal government has back-burnered the crisis of suicide by flat-funding critical prevention programs and efforts aimed at reaching people during their darkest hours to try and rescue them", Schumer said. "Robin William's death in 2014 we saw a 10 percent increase over the subsequent month and in total for the remainder of the year", said West Care Medical Director Dr. Herbert Cruz.

"It used to be that we didn't even talk about mental health, and certainly not suicide".

"One of the statistical things we know is that one of the best things we can do to reduce suicide when we are concerned about people is to continue to wrap around loved ones around them, not necessarily professionals", Walker said. Here in Georgia rates have increased 16 percent in the past 20 years. It was lowest in the United States capital, Washington, with 6.9 suicides per 100,000 residents per year.

"I have lived with anxiety and sporadic bouts of depression for most of my adult life", Munn wrote alongside a post listing global suicide hotlines. It also can happen when a close friend or family member commits suicide.

Marx says people should be able to offer someone in need the resources needed to get help.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number is 800-273-8255. She has started a foundation in memory of her father called Jerry's Walk and she now serves as president of the board at the Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation.
