Health Care

It shows the growing severity of the issue

More than half of suicides in 2015 in a subgroup of 27 states were among people with no known mental health condition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found. Suicide is rarely caused by any single factor, health officials said, but information from coroners' reports suggest numerous deaths followed relationship problems, substance use and financial crises.

The report says entire communities should be involved in preventing suicide.

"Many of us have been personally impacted by this unfortunate reality", said Greg Lakin, the chief medical officer of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.

"When you do a psychological autopsy and go and look carefully at medical records and talk to family members of the victims", he said, "90 percent will have evidence of a mental health condition". However, the fact that so many other factors appeared to contribute to suicide is an important finding. And so that's one of the things that this study really shows us.

She and her colleagues collected data on suicides from every state. Historically, the suicide rate tracks with recessions, rising when times are bad and falling when they're better.

During the entire study period, rates of suicide increased in almost every state. More than half of suicides in 2015 in a subgroup of 27 states were among people with no known mental health condition, which is why the CDC is calling for more education and awareness.

"Research for many years and across social and health science fields has demonstrated a strong relationship between economic downturns and an increase in deaths due to suicide", Sarah Burgard, an associate professor of sociology at the University of MI, told the Washington Post. They said coroners' reports from across the country indicate that suicides often follow relationship or financial problems, substance abuse and health crises.

"I think it's possible that we have some underrecognition of mental health conditions in our data, both because conditions haven't been formally diagnosed and because those left behind might not have been aware of the diagnosis", Schuchat said.

"None of this is surprising information, which is not to trivialize its importance".

A study published last week by the American Psychiatric Association evaluated red flag measures in CT and in and found those laws were associated with a 7.5 percent reduction in firearm suicides in the 10 years after their enactment.

From designers Alexander McQueen and Kate Spade to actor Robin Williams, a look at tragic celebrity hanging deaths. All such changes would reduce the suffering that leads to suicide.

A graphic released by the Centers for Disease Control in June 2018 shows rising suicide rates across the US between 1999 and 2016. KDADS also offers training regarding suicide prevention. "We know that same approach can work with suicide". It's important to talk about this issue, and end the stigma.

"American suicide is predominantly a firearm issue. We call it a care plan, and it's a way for people to stay safe when they feel suicidal urges come out", said Scott Langernecker, Illinois chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
