It shows the growing severity of the issue

Suicide rates have increased in almost every state over the past two decades, and half of the states have seen suicide rates go up more than 30 percent. Suicide is now the tenth leading cause of death in the country, and one of only three on the rise, in addition to Alzheimer's and drug overdoses.

"Any change in behavior patterns, withdrawing, sadness, irritability, anger, and losing their temper more quickly - those would all be indicators that possibly that person's mental health is deteriorating", says Dr. Christine Moutier of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

Between 1999 and 2016, suicide rates in Minnesota increased across age, sex and racial groups.

The number of self-inflicted deaths in 2016 - roughly the equivalent of the entire population of Murray, Utah - placed suicide as the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. That is why the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta made a decision to take a comprehensive look at suicides from 1999 to 2016. Indeed, the report found that more than half of people who died by suicide did not have a diagnosed mental health condition at the time of their death. The report says that substance abuse, financial stress, and relationship problems or loss all contribute to suicide risk. But most did have life problems.

"It's important that we think about this in more broad terms than just as a mental health condition", Schuchat says.

Thomas Delaney, a faculty member at the University of Vermont's Larner College of Medicine who studies suicide, said Thursday that several aspects of Vermont life have been linked to higher rates of suicide. "Over time, I figured out and learned through trial and error what worked for me to get past that feeling", said Mike Bushman of Naperville. Middle-age adults are among the hardest hit by suicide, the officials found. While the study did not look at the potential reasons why that might be, Schuchat offered a possible explanation.

Suicide rates in Vermont and New Hampshire are double that of MA.

Firearms were found to be the most common method of suicide, again used by those both with and without mental health issues. In the 27 states that use the National Violent Death Reporting System, 54 percent of suicides were by people without a known mental illness.

Researchers say the nation's suicide rate is lowest in Washington D.C. and highest in Montana.

Despite the increase, MA still has one of the nation's lowest per capita suicide rates, ranking 48th.

Only Nevada saw a decline, and that was just one percent.

The CDC recommends that the government, health care system, employers, schools, and community organizations treat suicide as a public health issue and provides resources on its website.

A range of strategies could help prevent suicides, from expanding access to mental and behavioral health care to improving education around individual coping skills and institutional supports, the report says.

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.
