How to get help for someone who might be suicidal

US suicide rate on rise: health agency

Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky each saw double digit increases in suicides between 1999 and 2016.

"Depression is the leading cause, the leading mental health condition associated with suicide", she said. It's a hidden problem for many people.

Bourdain's death marks the second celebrity suicide over the past week. The others are Alzheimer's disease and drug overdoses.

Staley said although he wasn't surprised by the numbers in the new CDC report, suicide death rates appear to have held steady in most recent years.

Between 1999 and 2016, the suicide rate in West Virginia increased 37.1%. A US report released in June 2018 found an uptick in suicide rates in almost every state since 1999.

"We don't have all the answers".

For the people included in the study, there are many factors that contribute to suicide.

Suicide rose in every state except Nevada, where the slight decline was largely due to a consistently high rate of suicides there - 23.1 per 100,000.

The flat-funded programs include the Garrett Lee Smith Suicide Prevention State Grants, which has received $35.42 million annually since 2013, Schumer said.

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

"There are a lot of people who are grieving". Dubbed the Werther Effect, it's very real.

"If I don't have somebody to turn to, obviously my chances of committing suicide or trying to commit suicide are much higher", said Olson. Or for worldwide folks, a list of crisis centers can be found here.

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death nationally and one of just three leading causes that's going up.

"The most important thing for people who have been ill enough for this to have been a risk is that they keep asking for help". An increase of greater than 30 percent in suicides was observed in 25 states. "If I say it, will they get that idea from me?'"

Sandy Williams says her father was 74 years old when he took his own life seven years ago.

"We want people to know they can talk to us and we can help them find healthy alternatives", he said.

For a suicide prevention number within the United States call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

"We need to ramp up the funding for suicide prevention efforts across the board, triage the flat-funding and extend the hand of the federal government to the communities, caregivers and families coping with such a painful problem", Schumer said.
