How to get help for someone who might be suicidal

The CDC found that suicides had increased in every state except Nevada, where they decreased by 1 percent.

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

Suicide rates increased by 25 percent across the United States over almost two decades ending in 2016, according to research published Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

She said it was "very disturbing" to see how, based on news reports, Bourdain "pretty much imitated" Spade despite seeing the devastation her death caused her family.

The Minnesota Health Department has increased efforts to identify at-risk communities to help reduce suicides.

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the country, according to the report.

Julia Payson, Executive Director of the Vernon branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association says it's example the illness doesn't discriminate.

The CDC suggested a wide-ranging list of ways for communities to help those contemplating suicide.

Susie Henderson, vice president of special projects at Burrell Behavioral Health, says there is a teachable moment in this tragedy; when the death of a high-profile individual brings the topic of suicide to the surface, it creates an opportunity to talk about it and work towards normalizing mental health and its prevention.

Relationship problems are the most common trigger, but the CDC says multiple circumstances also contribute, from life crises to substance abuse and health and financial problems. Montana recorded the highest rate of 29.2 suicides per 100,000, and Washington, D.C., the lowest, at 6.9 suicides per 100,000 people.

However, data shows more Nevadans under the age of 18 committed suicide this year already, compared to all of last year. Middle-aged adults - ages 45 to 64 - had the largest rate increase, rising to 19.2 per 100,000 in 2016 from 13.2 per 100,000 in 1999.

"Statistics show that if we can reach troubled people before, even in the midst of suicide ideation, there is a good chance they can be helped", said Schumer.

"If you think about if you've ever broken something or had a awful migraine or gone through labor, you want those pains to stop but you know they're going to stop", she said.

According to #BeThe1To, a public health campaign by the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, warning signs for suicide can include talking about feeling hopeless, trapped or like a burden to others; talking about wanting to die; increasing drug and alcohol use; acting anxiously or behaving recklessly; withdrawing from people; and experiencing extreme mood swings.

The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number is 800-273-8255.
