"Suicide is one of the top 10 causes of death in the USA right now, and it's one of three causes that is actually increasing recently, so we do consider it a public health problem - and something that is all around us", Schuchat said. The others are Alzheimer's disease and drug overdoses. Rates ranged from 6.9 per 100,000 in the District of Columbia to 29.2 in Montana. Rates have risen steadily in most age and ethnic groups, even as rates of psychiatric treatment and diagnosis have also greatly increased.

They were the source of about half of all suicides, the researchers say, and that percentage has stayed stable over the years. The CDC said the 27 states represent almost half the US population but can not be considered nationally representative. The report also called for greater promotion of the national suicide prevention hotline across the state, especially in rural areas. "There are some for youth, but they're very, very tiny", says Gebbia. The most important takeaway, mental health professionals say, is that suicide is an issue not only for the mentally ill but for anyone struggling with serious lifestyle problems. Help them connect to support 5. Follow up to see how they're doing. "Anytime we want to resolve something that involves firearms, we've need to talk about firearms explicitly", he says. A plan, because there is hope out there. "It's really realizing that is' worth that fight, because it really is a fight", Bushamn said.

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

"There's a lot of stigma around mental health issues and suicide in particular and that creates some barriers from people reaching out for help when they need it", Kurz said.
