It shows the growing severity of the issue

Bushman struggled with thoughts of suicide. Now an avid hiker, he offered and analogy. "Every step feels like it's an uphill stretch, but you just keep going and keep going and eventually you get to that summit, and the view when you get there is just spectacular", he said.

Suicide has become the 10th leading cause of death in the USA, and is one of three leading causes that are on the rise, the CDC said.

In addition to the skyrocketing number of suicides in middle-aged adults, deaths by suicide are also on the rise in teens, with suicide now the second leading cause of death for all United States teens and young adults from ages 10 to 35. Overall, the rate rose to 15.4 per 100,000 in 2014-2016 from 12.3 per 100,000 in 1999-2001.

The rates of suicide for all states and the District of Columbia were calculated using data from the National Vital Statistics System. Rates have risen steadily in most age and ethnic groups, even as rates of psychiatric treatment and diagnosis have also greatly increased. IN was even higher, experiencing an increase of suicides from 31 to 37 percent. An increase of greater than 30 percent in suicides was observed in 25 states.

Suicide is rarely caused by any single factor, health officials said, but information from coroners' reports suggest numerous deaths followed relationship problems, substance use and financial crises.

"It's not just a mental health concern", says Deborah Stone, a behavioral scientist at the CDC and the lead author of the new study. The overall data came from coded death certificate records.

In a study of these laws in two states, in and CT, researchers at the University of Indianapolis found that the legislation led to reductions in gun-related suicides, compared with the expected numbers: they were 7.5 per cent lower in IN in the decade after enactment, and 13.7 per cent lower in CT in the year since strict enforcement began. The CDC said the 27 states represent almost half the US population but can not be considered nationally representative. "Majority say it's glorified and not accurate at all", Brown said. Keep them safe, and possibly remove items that can harm them.

The CDC said "everyone can help prevent suicide" by learning the warning signs, reducing access to lethal means, such as firearms and medication, and by contacting the national suicide prevention hotline, 1-800-273-TALK for help. Be there with them, and listen to them. 4. It's important for people to support each other with open and honest conversations about how they're feeling, and take care to notice when family members and loved ones are especially stressed. They were also more likely to commit a homicide followed by suicide (aOR = 2.9, 95% CI = 2.2-3.8) than the latter group. A plan, because there is hope out there. "I'm not worth living", Brown said.
