How to get help for someone who might be suicidal

Research shows suicides are up in nearly every state across the country.

Shuchat says, "We do see increases in suicides associated with economic downturns and it can take a long time for the recovery to kick in".

Research found that firearms were the most common method of suicide by people both "with and without a known diagnosed mental illness".

But the hope in knowing that so numerous millions of Americans who struggle with mental health issues go on to recovery can seem hard to focus on amid tragedies such as this week's public deaths of designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, said office director Sarah Brummett.

Twenty-five states had suicide-rate increases of more than 30 percent.

Signs and symptoms to look for include isolation, agitation, anger, alcohol or drug use and changes in sleep patterns.

The National Suicide Prevention hotline is 1-800-273-TALK or text "TALK" to 741741.

According to the CDC's latest report, suicide rates in Kansas, especially in women, have seen a drastic increase. Suicide rates were higher among males in Maryland, ranging from about 17 to 18 per 100,000 males.

She said: "I think [playing on clay] was still kind of a confusion in the head up until about a week ago (smiling)". She will face 10th-seeded Sloane Stephens , who had little trouble beating No. 14 Daria Kasatkina, 6-3, 6-1.

There are many avenues for treatment, but experts say getting the right help begins with simply asking someone if they are having suicidal thoughts.

The per capita suicide rates in Vermont and New Hampshire place them in the top fifth in the country. In all, 772 Oregonians died by suicide in 2016, the CDC reported.

Guns are the most common method used for suicides in the USA, accounting for about half of such deaths in 2016, followed by hanging and then poisoning (including through the use of opioids).

Middle-aged adults - age 45 to 64 - had the largest rate increase, rising to 19.2 per 100,000 in 2016 from 13.2 in 1999. They said news reporting in graphic detail about celebrity suicides was another contributor. Since 1999, suicide rates have soared 25 percent in the United States.

On one hand Brown said the series may have gotten some teens to speak out on suicide as an important issue and they may have shared experiences. "We can all make a difference by knowing the warning signs and how to reach out for help", Morris continued.

For support outside of the USA, a worldwide directory of resources and global hotlines is provided by the global Association for Suicide Prevention. But local mental health advocates said they are also seeing younger people struggling with suicidal impulses. "For celebrities, in particular, and those in the spotlight, there is an expectation that the general public has that because these individuals are successful and attractive, they likely do not or could never suffer from a mental or emotional disorder", Dr.

"One of the things we keep coming back to when these surprising events happen is you never know what is in somebody's head", he said.
