The 'trend' that is troubling the US

The 'trend' that is troubling the US

Suicide rose in every state except Nevada, where the slight decline was largely due to a consistently high rate of suicides there - 23.1 per 100,000. Ms. Spade and Mr. Bourdain are now among the approximately 45,000 suicides each year in the United States.

In a report that examines trends in suicide at the state level from 1999 to 2016, the CDC says suicide rates have increased in almost every state. In Ohio, the rate increased 36%.

The increases range from six percent in DE to 58 percent in North Dakota.

The study, which spanned 1999 to 2016, found that more than half of people who killed themselves did not have a known diagnosed mental health condition at the time of death.

Other factors include the crisis in the past or upcoming two weeks (29 percent), use of a substance (28 percent), physical health problems (22 percent), work or financial problems (16 percent), a criminal legal problem (9 percent), and loss of housing (4 percent).

She said it was "very disturbing" to see how, based on news reports, Bourdain "pretty much imitated" Spade despite seeing the devastation her death caused her family.

"We are highly aware we still have high rates, but we will never give up". But Dr. Joshua Gordon, director of the National Institute of Mental Health, said that contradicts years of data, suggesting many have "gone undiagnosed and untreated".

US suicide rate on rise: health agency

Suicide is now the 10th leading cause of death in the country.

As suicide becomes more of a public health problem, there are a number of organizations that provide free support for people in need.

"A celebrity's suicide can create a contagion that we want to be aware of and those individuals who are a risk, who might be connected to that celebrity, we want to reach out to them", Egan said. Guns were the most common method of suicide, the study found.

"Depression is the leading cause, the leading mental health condition associated with suicide", she said.

In all, 25 states saw increases in their suicide rates topping 30 percent.

- Take the person to an emergency room or seek help from a medical or mental health professional.
