CDC report reveals more than 45,000 Americans took their own lives in 2016

US suicide rates increased more than 25% since 1999, CDC says

Among people ages 15 to 34, suicide is the second-leading cause of death. Gun suicide attempts end in death about 85 percent of the time, compared to less than 5 percent for intentional drug overdoses. "We call it a care plan, and it's a way for people to stay safe when they feel suicidal urges come out", said Scott Langernecker, Illinois chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

MA experienced a 35 percent increase in suicides from 1999 to 2016, but its suicide rate remains comparatively low: 10 per 100,000 people in 2014-2016, compared with 15.4 per 100,000 for the nation as a whole.

Suicide has become the 10th leading cause of death in the USA, and is one of three leading causes that are on the rise, the CDC said. Twenty-five states experienced a rise in suicides by more than 30%, the government report finds. 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.

And the most common method of taking one's own life was using a firearm, which accounted for 48.5% of suicide cases.

"Our data suggests that suicide is more than a mental health issue", Schuchat said. While non-firearm suicides were basically equivalent in both groups, firearm suicides were about four times more prevalent in the latter.

A study published last week by the American Psychiatric Association evaluated red flag measures in CT and in and found those laws were associated with a 7.5 percent reduction in firearm suicides in the 10 years after their enactment.

If you are having thoughts of harming yourself or thinking about suicide, talk to someone who can help, such as a trusted loved one, your doctor, your licensed mental health professional if you already have one, or go to the nearest hospital emergency department. But researchers can not say what percentage of those had severe pain as their main problem. It's up everywhere. And we know that the rates are actually higher than what's reported.

The report said people without known mental health problems were more likely to die by firearms than those with known mental health problems.

"Suicidologists regularly state that suicide is not caused by a single factor; however, suicide prevention is often oriented toward mental health conditions alone with regard to downstream identification of suicidal persons, treatment of mental health conditions, and prevention of reattempts", researchers wrote.

The report is bad news, the CDC acknowledges, but people are not helpless to prevent suicide. It's important to keep in mind to remove access to firearms, medications, or any other potential tools they might use to harm themsevles.

The rates of suicide for all states and the District of Columbia were calculated using data from the National Vital Statistics System. Finding economic circumstances was a major contributing factor, especially during the Great Recession (2008).

'Conditions like postpartum depression and menopause [may put some women at a higher risk], and, for women in general, stereotypes of being the flawless mom and employee, the stigma associated with a need to "balance" all of that can cause pressure as well, ' said Dr Ali.

"If you think of [suicide] as other leading causes of death, like AIDS and cancer, with the public health approach, mortality rates decline", Moutier said.
