CDC report reveals more than 45,000 Americans took their own lives in 2016

In 2016 almost 45,000 Americans aged 10 or older died by suicide, up from 41,149 suicides in 2013 - making it the 10th leading cause of death in the nation, according to the agency.

The report found that from 1999 to 2016, suicide rates increased in 49 states, with 25 states experiencing increases of more than 30 percent.

"This is a major public health problem but we know that prevention programs work and can be effective in reducing this tragedy", Dr. Anne Schuchat, CDC principal deputy director, told Fox News. In a subgroup of 27 states, including all six New England states, more than half the suicides in 2015 occurred among people with no known mental health condition.

Schuchat said that many factors can increase a person's suicide risk, including relationship problems, substance abuse, physical and mental health, job and money issues, and legal problems. "We can see suicide rates improve slower than the economy". In the most recent period studied (2014 to 2016), the rate was highest in Montana, at 29.2 per 100,000 residents, compared with the national average of 13.4 per 100,000.

The high proportion of older people who are white and low rates of religiosity in New Hampshire may also play a role, she said.

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.

In 2016, 745 suicides were reported in Minnesota.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri said Monday that she is supporting federal legislation to provide funding for the U.S. Department of Agriculture to establish help lines and provide suicide prevention training for farm advocates.

The data also shows that about 22%-24% of people who died by suicide, regardless of whether or not they had a diagnosed mental health condition, disclosed their intent at some point, underscoring the importance of taking such comments seriously.

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.

CDC officials noted numerous factors may prompt someone to commit suicide, not just mental health issues.

Kansas has many resources available, ranging from prevention and behavioral health promotion strategies to guidance in responding effectively to suicidal thoughts, plans, and actions.

Though more than half of people who died of suicide had no diagnosis, only 16 percent of those were women.

"Too many Kansans are lost to suicide each year", KDADS Secretary Tim Keck said.

'If we step back from the statistics, mental health does not discriminate, ' said Dr Shainna Ali, a Florida psychologist.

"People who attempt suicide are often acutely distressed or in crisis at that particular moment".

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

Keep them safe. Reduce access to lethal means for those at risk. Be there with them, and listen to them. 4.

Help them connect with ongoing support. The report also called for greater promotion of the national suicide prevention hotline across the state, especially in rural areas. Follow up to see how they're doing.
