The 'trend' that is troubling the US

The 'trend' that is troubling the US

A lot of those states with the highest suicide rates happen to be in the Midwest where there are lower populations and more rural areas.

Suicide rates in almost every state in the US have spiked by 30 percent since 1999, according to a new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). "Talking about suicide with someone who maybe even thinking about it can actually prevent it from happening".

Virginia reports a 29 percent increase in children taking their own lives.

But the according to the report, more than half of people who died by suicide did not have a known mental health condition.

The number of suicide incidents rose across different genders, ages, and races, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"These findings are disturbing", said Dr. Anne Schuchat, the CDC's principal deputy director, during a media call.

The CDC study found, too, that suicide increased among all sexes, ages, races and ethnic groups.

"It's important that we think about this in more broad terms than just as a mental health condition", Schuchat says.

Thiem hails 'awesome' King of Clay after French Open defeat
The Spaniard races into a 30-0 lead on his own serve before calling for the trainer mid-game, saying he can not hold his racket. Bizarrely, Nadal then halted playing in the fourth game complaining of pain in his left hand and stretching his middle finger.

This morning, it was determined that celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain's death was a suicide, but a few days ago he posted a video of himself having fun.

Looking at CDC figures from 2014, suicide is the second leading cause of death among those aged 10-34.

People often just need "a non-judgmental open ear to talk and for someone to just be able to listen to them and what is going on in the world", she said.

"That includes a professional to help them with their thoughts of suicide", Egan said.

Munn also issued a plea to those struggling with suicidal thoughts: "Please listen to me-from someone who is telling you that she's been where you are-when I say that SUICIDE IS NOT THE RIGHT CHOICE", she wrote.

This week's report found that many suicides were in people with no known mental illness.

The new CDC report states half of the country has seen a more than 30 percent increase in suicide rates since 1999. Every state but Nevada saw an increase in suicide rates during that time, the CDC reported.

"A celebrity's suicide can create a contagion that we want to be aware of and those individuals who are a risk, who might be connected to that celebrity, we want to reach out to them", Egan said.
