How to get help for someone who might be suicidal

How to get help for someone who might be suicidal

During the entire study period, rates of suicide increased in almost every state.

However, there was an increase found in all but one state: Nevada.

The Kansas suicide rate is growing much faster than the national average.

Suicide is "a tragedy for families and communities across the country", Dr. Anne Schuchat, the principal deputy director of the CDC, said in a statement.

This report was released just as another celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain died by suicide this Friday. These high-profile suicides come as the CDC reports a dramatic rise in the number of people taking their own lives.

The CDC, the top U.S. public health agency, said individual states need to do more to boost suicide prevention "and address the range of factors contributing to suicide".

The App Limits feature lets users - you guessed it - set a limit for the amount of time they can spend in each app. Facebook has had to rethink its relationship to such third-party data providers and developers.

Some factors that contribute to suicide are relationship problems, physical health problems, loss of housing, and a crisis from the past. Rates increased significantly among males in 34 states and females in 43 states.

Montana had the highest suicide rate, at 29.2 per 100,000 people per year, while the District of Columbia had the lowest, at 6.9 suicides per 100,000 people per year.

NY has the second lowest suicide rates in the country. Middle-aged adults - ages 45 to 64 - had the largest rate increase, rising to 19.2 per 100,000 in 2016 from 13.2 per 100,000 in 1999.

The report calls on state and local communities, health care providers, and individuals to take steps to prevent suicide.

"We know this is about an illness and as people get sicker and sicker and close to suicide, they can't communicate to everyone very logically, very clearly - 'here's the step I'm going to take at this time and in this way, '" said Reidenberg. The CDC found 55 percent of suicides where the person was not known to have a mental health condition were carried out using firearms, and 45 percent of those who did have a diagnosed mental health issue.

They also say to look at yourself and make sure you're ok too.

If you or someone you know is considering suicide, self-harm, or is anxious, depressed, upset or needs to talk, call the 27/7 National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255 or text the crisis text line at 741-741.
