In half of all states, suicide rates increased by 30% or more.

"Research for many years and across social and health science fields has demonstrated a strong relationship between economic downturns and an increase in deaths due to suicide", Sarah Burgard an associate professor of sociology at the University of MI, explained in an email on Thursday.

NY saw a roughly 30 percent jump since 1999, mirroring the nationwide rate for the same period, according to the agency, which examined state-level trends in suicide rates from that year through 2016. While mental health is often a factor, the CDC cautioned that there is no single reason for the almost 30 percent nationwide increase between 1999 and 2016, pointing to the finding that approximately half of those who died by suicide did not have a known mental health condition. In non-metropolitan areas, suicides were estimated to occur in 20 of every 10,000 residents in 2015.

In a year, millions more consider, plan and attempt to kill themselves.

The CDC says that more than 45,000 Americans age 10 and older dying by suicide in 2016.

Suicide rates are on the rise in nearly every state, according to a new analysis released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The increasing rate comes as no surprise to those who work to prevent suicide. That are traumatic for people such as loss of a relationship, death of a loved one, loss of a job, major things that happen in your life that are hard to deal with.

"I think it's a tragic statistic, and it points to the fact that we need to redouble our efforts at suicide prevention", Summers said. "Those who died by suicide were somewhat more likely to struggle with relationship problems or loss, other life stresses, or deal with impending crises", Schuchat says. But in some states, the increases are staggering.

Mental illness is also most common among women, though it tends to be reported more frequently by those in younger age groups, between 18 and 25.

'This kind of "perfectionism" not only affects women, but, in light of Spade's suicide, it is something we can highlight, ' she added'. It's important to do not forget to remove access to firearms, medications, or any other potential tools they might use to harm themsevles.

The high proportion of older people who are white and low rates of religiosity in New Hampshire may also play a role, she said.

Whether or not Spade had a problematic relationship with alcohol at the time of her death, substance abuse was common among 28 percent of those who died by suicide in 2016, according to the CDC's report.

In light of its findings, the CDC has also released an accompanying 'technical package, ' which details the agency's recommenced policies and programs. "They make sure that they are getting the help that they need".

"Many of us have been personally impacted by this unfortunate reality", said Greg Lakin, the chief medical officer of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment. She also mentioned trigger locks as a possible prevention tool.

If you believe a loved one is considering suicide, do not leave him or her alone and try to get the person to seek help from a doctor or the nearest hospital emergency department or dial 911.
