How to get help for someone who might be suicidal

The per capita suicide rates in Vermont and New Hampshire place them in the top fifth in the country. While this was obviously a large increase, there were 23 other states that reported bigger jumps in that same timeframe. "For mental illness, you just can't tell".

He also said with the school year coming to an end for many districts, keep a close eye on your kids. This conference will strengthen the resources available to all people and help to reduce the stigma of mental health issues and suicide.

While suicide prevention efforts largely focus on identifying and providing treatment for people with mental health conditions, the majority of people who committed suicide did not have known mental health problems, according to the report.

"Suicide is more than a mental health issue", the CDC's Dr. Anne Schuchat said in a media briefing Thursday.

"You don't die by suicide as a result of a divorce or bullying or a job loss".

Experts say there is no single cause for suicide. It is now the 10-leading cause of death in the USA, and is one of only three leading causes of death that are on the rise.

Using data from the National Vital Statistics System for 50 states and the District of Columbia, CDC researchers analyzed suicide rates for people 10 and older from 1999 through 2016.

"Even though there are deaths by suicide and they are on the rise, what helps the most is telling stories of resiliency". Men age 35 to 65 are less likely to seek help when in distress. It also can happen when a close friend or family member commits suicide.

"People should know that suicide is preventable".

Dr. Stone noted that historically some western states have the highest rates of suicide, which could be related to the fact that they tend to be more rural.

" In Maryland, people having suicidal thoughts can also call 211 to talk with agents who can provide aid".

A new government report reveals a sharp increase in suicides nationwide. "We need to learn more about why New Hampshire has been experiencing these higher rates", she said. "I need to rise above and be strong, '" Winter said.

"If the first person you talk to laughs at you or says, 'Oh just get out of it, you just got out of the wrong side of the bed this morning, ' find another person because that's not the only person", said Keltz.

Utah recently passed legislation providing for better staffed, more effective 24-hour hotlines for those considering suicide or for people anxious about friends.
