What to do if you suspect someone is suicidal

It is now the 10-leading cause of death in the US, and is one of only three leading causes of death that are on the rise.

States in the midwest saw the most dramatic spikes, and North Dakota had the highest increase in such deaths, with a 57.6 percent jump.

They found that suicide rates increased in every state except Nevada over the past two decades; and half of the country (25 states) saw suicide rates rise more than 30%.

Almost 45,000 Americans took their own lives in 2016 and according to the CDC two-thirds of gun-related deaths in the United States are suicides, the BBC reports.

Although there is no single cause for suicide, information from coroners' reports suggests numerous deaths followed relationship problems, substance use, and financial crises, according to the CDC. In a subgroup of 27 states, including all six New England states, more than half the suicides in 2015 occurred among people with no known mental health condition. In fact, there can be many reasons - relationship problems, facing a crisis, or substance abuse. Teens in North Dakota are three times more likely to die by suicide, Public News Service reported a year ago. "Over time, I figured out and learned through trial and error what worked for me to get past that feeling", said Mike Bushman of Naperville.

"It's not just a mental health concern", says Deborah Stone, a behavioral scientist at the CDC and the lead author of the new study. Suicide is very often an impulsive act, and a person who contemplates it can readily survive if no lethal weapon is at hand. But in MA, that rate increased 35.3 percent.

"The shocking statistic is to see Oklahoma's rate has changed so significantly", said Julie Summers, Mental Health Association Oklahoma's director of outreach and prevention.

Since the year 2000, suicide rates in Louisiana have risen by more than 29 percent among both men and women.

Schuchat said that suicide is a national issue, and that no one community is immune.

Mental illness, including depression and anxiety, is a major risk factor for suicide.

Allen, who has been at the department since 1998, said the state had the highest suicide rate in the nation when she started her work. But there are some warning signs to watch out for.

Brown said warning signs can include something as simple as talkative people becoming more quiet or the opposite- those who are normally quiet becoming more verbal; or letting their hygiene go as well as verbal cues.
