These red-flag laws "have generated interest in response to high-profile homicides, but in practice far more guns have been seized due to concerns of suicide risk", said Aaron Kivisto, a co-author of the study with Peter Lee Phalen. "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.

The experiences of CT and IN prove the point. In the USA, to nobody's surprise, firearms are the most commonly used method, accounting for 41 percent of suicides of people with known mental-health conditions, and 55 percent of those without, according to the CDC report.

The study, "Vital Signs: Trends in State Suicide Rates - United States, 1999-2016 and Circumstances Contributing to Suicide - 27 States, 2015", was published online in the CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report this week.

The high proportion of older people who are white and low rates of religiosity in New Hampshire may also play a role, she said. The overall data came from coded death certificate records. 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.

But Anestis believes that it's important to not beat around the bush when it comes to guns and to talk about the importance of things like setting waiting periods for purchase, and storing guns locked and unloaded.
