How to have tough conversations about mental health

Lynette PayneJun 11, 2018

Multiple factors can lead to a person making that choice. The United States has a total 25 percent increase, CNN reports.

The study's findings suggest more must be done to prevent suicide and work should extend beyond those diagnosed with a mental illness, Schuchat said.

Polky says resources like the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline could end up saving someone's life - immediately and long term. Experts worry that following celebrity suicide deaths, at risk individuals may use these examples to carry out their own intentions "These are people that we look up to and when we hear they've taken their lives it kind of demystifies that to some extent".

The report finds almost 45,000 Americans age 10 or older died by suicide in 2016. Middle-aged adults - ages 45 to 64 - had the largest rate increase, according to the report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In North Dakota, the suicide rate increased by nearly 58 percent from 1999 to 2016, according to a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

According to another report by the CDC, 10 out of 100,000 people died from suicide in 2005.

The increasing suicide rates are the result of a number of factors.

"The most important thing for people who have been ill enough for this to have been a risk is that they keep asking for help". In 2017 the medical examiner's office hired Michael Staley, a suicide prevention research coordinator, to find out why Utah has such high rates of suicide.

"Statistics show that if we can reach troubled people before, even in the midst of suicide ideation, there is a good chance they can be helped", said Schumer. "For those who don't understand depression, when someone is in that place it's not because they want to die.it's because the ongoing, relentless darkness is too painful to endure anymore", she wrote.

With or without mental health conditions, people who commit suicide do so for a variety of reasons. About 3 to 4 females per 100,000 died by suicide in Maryland during that period.

If you or someone you know is considering suicide, self-harm, or is anxious, depressed, upset or needs to talk, call the 27/7 National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255 or text the crisis text line at 741-741.
