How to get help for someone who might be suicidal

Of the 25 states where the suicide rate increase by more than 30 percent, the most noticeable rises occurred in western states.

NY saw a roughly 30 percent jump since 1999, mirroring the nationwide rate for the same period, according to the agency, which examined state-level trends in suicide rates from that year through 2016.

The Minnesota Health Department has increased efforts to identify at-risk communities to help reduce suicides.

The CDC study found that 54% of Americans who died by suicide had no known mental health illness.

Schuchat said the data analyzed revealed a number of factors leading up to death by suicide, including economic woes, relationship issues, substance misuse, physical health problems and others.

"The shocking statistic is to see Oklahoma's rate has changed so significantly", said Julie Summers, Mental Health Association Oklahoma's director of outreach and prevention.

Advocates fighting to decrease those numbers say it's crucial we understand suicide is more than a mental health issue - it's a public health issue. For example, states can help by expanding options for temporary assistance for those struggling with financial or housing stress; health care systems can help by offering treatment options by phone or online in places where services are not widely available; and communities can help by offering programs and events that bring people together so they feel connected.

About 45,000 people committed suicide in the U.S.in 2016. You might say you're noticing behaviors that can be associated with thoughts of suicide, Buhse said, and then ask, "Are you thinking of killing yourself?"

In a conference call with reporters Thursday, Schuchat and Deborah Stone, lead author of the CDC analysis, stressed that other factors were also critical to preventing suicide.
