CDC: US suicide rates have climbed dramatically
A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that suicide rates have increased dramatically across the United States. "Anyone contemplating suicide should know that help is available, and that there is no shame in seeking care for your mental health", Dr. Altha Stewart of the American Psychiatric Association said in a statement. From 1999 to 2016, 49 states saw suicides increase by 5 percent or more, and 25 of those states saw increases of a staggering 30 percent or higher.
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US and is one of just three leading causes that are on the rise.
"Suicide does tend to rise during the holidays or at least that's what some early reports said". In the most recent period studied (2014 to 2016), the rate was highest in Montana, at 29.2 per 100,000 residents, compared with the national average of 13.4 per 100,000.
From 2007 to 2017, the number of suicides in Cuyahoga County has gradually increased, with some years being much worse than others, according to Hugh Shannon at the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office. DE had the lowest increase at 5.9 percent. Only Nevada did not record a rise.
Firearms were the most commonly reported method of suicides (48.5%), though decedents with known mental health conditions were less likely to die by firearm (40.6%) and more likely to use strangulation (31.3%) or poisoning (19.8%) than those without (26.9% and 10.4%, respectively).
Commenters on Munn's post emphasized the need to talk about suicide and mental health on a larger scale.
Among the stark numbers in the CDC report was the one signaling a high number of suicides among people without a known mental health condition.
If you are having thoughts of harming yourself or thinking about suicide, talk to someone who can help, such as a trusted loved one, your doctor, your licensed mental health professional if you already have one, or go to the nearest hospital emergency department.
The CDC recommended a public health approach to suicide prevention, which would require government, healthcare, employers, education system, community organizers and the media to work together to take steps to bring down the rates. "Suicide is a public health problem that can be prevented".
Research shows suicides are up in nearly every state across the country.
Suicide ranked as the ninth-leading cause of death in Canada in 2009, the a year ago for which numbers are available, and is the 10th-leading cause of death overall in the U.S. Many who died by suicide had been struggling with substance abuse, finances, stable housing or personal relationships.
(Undated) - Indiana's suicide rate is up sharply from 1999, but the state is not alone. Outside of the US, please visit the International Association for Suicide Prevention for a database of resources. Listen to them. Take their feelings seriously, because they're real and they're serious.
