Recent CDC report finds rates increasing

"With all of us working together and by collectively making a massive investment in suicide prevention research, resources and quality mental health care we can and we will reverse the rising suicide rate".

The biggest spike in suicides since 1999 was in North Dakota, where suicides rose 57 percent. Montana, Idaho, the Dakotas, and Wyoming all saw increases between 38 and 58 percent.

"There are a lot of things to do and the first one is to not ignore the signs of someone, a child who is talking about suicide", Dr. Spruiell says. 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.

The most common method of suicide involved firearms.

While the CDC did not speculate on the ties between suicide and opioids, a number of states with high rates of opioid use also ranked high in the rate of increase in suicides.

It is hitting many places especially hard.

The United States has one of the highest rates of suicide in the world, according to World Health Organization data.

The association's president, Julie Cerel, added that suicide rates were disproportionate among middle-aged men.

New research shows suicides are on the rise in nearly every state across the country. But their deaths should serve to highlight suicide as a serious and growing public-health problem that demands attention and action.

Terrebonne Parish had 14 suicides previous year, and Lafourche Parish had 17. Particularly among younger people, Phillips said, "We are seeing somewhat more tolerant attitudes toward suicide". "That's equalizing not because men are [taking their lives] less, but women are doing it more". While we focus on the mental health of people who take their lives, the CDC found that over half of suicides had no known mental illness.

An average of eight children in the state up to age 14 die by suicide a year, according to a report by the Louisiana Child Death Panel Review.

But Joshua Gordon, director of the National Institute of Mental Health, said that that statistic must be viewed in context.

"Even though we need to do a really good job of supporting people who are already at risk of mental health issues, it goes beyond that. Then say, 'What can I do?' or 'How can I help?' They may not have an answer, but it's worth asking".

Cultural attitudes may play a part.

That study was based on monthly suicide data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, dated from 1999 to 2015.

According to Matthew Nock, a professor of psychology at Harvard, the wide majority of people who die by suicide "explicitly deny suicidal thoughts or intentions in their last communications before dying".

The AFSP says some warning signs of suicide include talking about no reason to live, talking about being a burden to others, increased use of drugs or alcohol, withdrawing from activities and mood changes.
