How to get help for someone who might be suicidal

The CDC report found that suicide rates among women have risen at an even higher rate than the overall suicide rate, with significant increases in the suicide rate among women in 43 states.

"Our data show that suicide is more than a mental health issue", Schuchat said. "The differences in the prevalence of life stressors was very small, so it is hard to attribute suicide to life stress per se". It found that 54 percent of suicide victims did not have a known mental health condition. Changes in a job, relationship, health and money stress are just some of the things that can contribute to someone taking their life. Asked whether that was a deliberate omission, because of the political climate surrounding gun control, Stone said that suicide rates have been increasing across all methods.

"We saw higher increases among middle-aged people, but we did see increases in younger people and older people - essentially every age group other than those over age 75 saw increasing rates of suicide during this time period", Schuchat said.

For example, if you are anxious someone is feeling suicidal, don't be afraid to ask the question and "open the conversation", Summers said.

"We know that suicide is a pretty impulsive act", Kurz said, "so if we can buy a little time, that can save lives". Nevada, the outlier, had a slight decrease of 1 percent in its suicide rate. During the study period, rate increases ranged from just under 6 percent in DE to over 57 percent in North Dakota. The rates have gone up more than 30% in half of all states since 1999, she says.

The data also laid bare a 42 percent growth in emergency hospital visits for self-harm, which were the main risk factor for suicides between 2001 and 2016. 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.

Increasingly, suicide is being viewed not only as a mental health problem but a public health one.

One factor in the rising rate, say mental health professionals as well as economists, sociologists and epidemiologists, is the Great Recession that hit 10 years ago.

The CDC recommended a broad approach to suicide prevention, including boosting economic support by states, supporting family and friends after a suicide, and identifying and supporting people at risk for suicide.

"Teaching coping skills and problem solving skills and providing access to services can help with those challenges", says the CDC's Dr. Anne Schuchat.

'If we step back from the statistics, mental health does not discriminate, ' said Dr Shainna Ali, a Florida psychologist. Last year, the CDC released a package on suicide prevention that includes strategies based on the best available evidence.

Glenn opened up on today's show, speaking from his own experiences with mental pain and describing the dangers that people face while going through depression.

This is part of its larger call on entire communities - beginning at the family level and expanding all the way up to society as a whole - to come together to watch out for suicidal behavior and make help more accessible.

Note: If you or you're concerned a loved one is having suicidal thoughts, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK.
