CDC: US suicide rates have climbed dramatically

The report says Montana's suicide rate grew by 38 percent between 1999 and 2016.

"Our data suggests suicide is more than a mental health issue", said Deborah M. Stone, lead author of that study. "We need to make sure we're viewing this from a public health perspective and that we're making it easier for people to get resources, that we are reducing factors that contribute to suicide", Ackerman said.

The report found that some of the leading causes of suicide included: relationship issues, substance abuse, job struggles, physical health, and past or upcoming moments of crisis. DE saw the smallest increase at 5.9%, while North Dakota saw a 57.6% increase over the same period.

While the CDC did not speculate on the ties between suicide and opioids, a number of states with high rates of opioid use also ranked high in the rate of increase in suicides.

Nevada was the only state that didn't see an increase in its suicide rate during the study period, though the state has had a consistently high rate of suicide, the report found.

"The most common method was firearm, followed by hanging or suffocation, followed by poisoning", Schuchat said.

While the murder rate has fallen dramatically over the past four decades, suicide is on the rise, and the reasons are multiple. "That sort of gives one pause that we need to focus on that age range".

But Joshua Gordon, director of the National Institute of Mental Health, said that that statistic must be viewed in context.

"People should know that suicide is preventable".

Folks at the Crisis Center in Birmingham say whenever a public figure takes their life it can certainly cause others who may have been considering it to think about it even more.

"It means that around 16 out of every 100,000 Americans will take their own life", the CDC study concluded, according to a report by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).
