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

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

Suicide rates are up more than 30% in 25 states across the country. More than half of suicides in 2015 in a subgroup of 27 states were among people with no known mental health condition, which is why the CDC is calling for more education and awareness. "These findings are disturbing".

Both states easily exceeded the nation as a whole, with the overall US suicide rate rising 25.4 percent. Suicide, Alzheimer's disease and drug overdoses are three leading causes of deaths with growing prevalence.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) just released staggering data comparing the suicide rate in the USA in 1999-2000 to 2015-2016. People can help prevent suicide by recognizing the warning signs, as well as the circumstances that often lead up to suicide, and take this as an opportunity to reach out to the person and help them get the help they need, Schuchat said. Even New Jersey, with a relatively low rate of 9.2 per 100,000, still saw an increase.

CDC Principal Deputy Director Dr. Anne Schuchat told NBC, "Middle-aged adults had the largest number of suicides and a particularly high increase in suicide rates". Now this new report from CDC shows the suicide rate across the country is on the rise.

These new statistics come just days after the shocking news of handbag designer Kate Spade's alleged sudden suicide. "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.

A 2017 Kansas report on suicide prevention from the Governor's Behavioral Health Services Planning Council listed promoting funding opportunities for suicide prevention among its recommendations.

If this person talks or behaves in a way that makes you believe that he or she may try to attempt suicide, then get help from a trained professional as quickly as possible.

Experts note that mental illness may have been underreported in the study, either because the person who killed themself had not yet been diagnosed or because those left behind were not aware their loved one's condition.

U.S. to release American 'enemy combatant' held in Iraq
The detainee, who has a degree in electrical engineering, is married with one child, according to court papers. Hafetz said the ACLU will ask "the court to immediately intervene and ensure the safe release of our client".

And the controversial Netflix series "13 Reasons Why", which follows a high school girl who takes her own life after being bullied and sexually assaulted, has sparked discussion about the alarming rates of teen suicide, in particular, which has also seen a frightening increase.

The rise in suicide rates was highest in the central, northern region of the USA, with North Dakota, for example, seeing a 57.6 percent increase since 1999.

Vermont also has a high rate of binge drinking, and evidence suggests that people who drink too much are at higher risk of suicide.

She recommended families store guns and drugs in safe places to reduce suicides.

"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.

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

Help them connect with ongoing support.

If you or someone you know may be contemplating suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
