How to have tough conversations about mental health

US suicide rate on rise: health agency

US suicide rate on rise: health agency

The new report from the Centers for Disease Control shows that suicides in Utah have risen more than 46 percent since 1999.

Suicide is now the 10th leading cause of death in the United States.

Indiana's suicide rate increased more than 30 percent from 1999 to 2016, according to a recent federal report.

That report comes on the heels of two well-known celebrities taking their lives this week.

"Suicide is more than a mental health issue", Schuchat said.

While suicide rates rose across age groups, the CDC said people ages 45-64 had the biggest rate increase.

Prevention efforts, often focused on mental health, could be broadened to focus on people undergoing life stresses like job losses or divorces, the CDC's Dr. Anne Schuchat said in a media briefing.

"It's that personal connection to another person that may make the difference".

Netflix Is Turning 'Stranger Things' Into A Book Series
According to Deadline , the prequel, set to release in early 2019, will follow Eleven's mother and the MKUltra Program . Whenever a show blows up in the way " Stranger Things " has, there's usually merchanside to go with it.

Commenters on Munn's post emphasized the need to talk about suicide and mental health on a larger scale.

Those include if a person is giving important items away, if a person is stopping doing things important to him or her, or if a person is more intentional in saying "good bye" or "I love you".

Experts say be aware of what friends and family are going through, and talk about any changes in behavior.

"When I talk about my husband, I talk about what an fantastic guy he was", she said.

Firearms were the leading method, accounting for about half of suicides. While the suicide rate increased in women, it's still 3 to 5 times higher in men. Suicide rates were higher among males in Maryland, ranging from about 17 to 18 per 100,000 males.

The increases range from six percent in DE to 58 percent in North Dakota.

Abby Litovski is over the center's crisis and suicide line program and says since news of the suicides came out, they have certainly gotten an increase in calls this week. "So, when you put those things together, it can be hard to find help even when you want it", Trisha Kajimura, Mental Health America of Hawai'i Executive Director, said. It's important to keep in mind to remove access to firearms, medications, or any other potential tools they might use to harm themselves.

The National Suicide prevention hotline is 1-800-273-8255 or you can text "HOME" to 7-4-1-7-4-1. All calls are confidential.
