  • How to look for suicide warning signs

Across the board in the US, suicide rates were up 25.4 percent in that 17-year period.

Prevention efforts, often focused on mental health, could be broadened to focus on people undergoing life stresses like job losses or divorces, the CDC's Dr. Anne Schuchat said in a media briefing.

In all, 25 states saw increases in their suicide rates topping 30 percent.

Signs and symptoms to look for include isolation, agitation, anger, alcohol or drug use and changes in sleep patterns.

"If the first person you talk to laughs at you or says, 'Oh just get out of it, you just got out of the wrong side of the bed this morning, ' find another person because that's not the only person", said Keltz.

Anyone seeking suicide prevention help can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

States in the midwest saw the most dramatic spikes, and North Dakota had the highest increase in such deaths, with a 57.6 percent jump.

"We do have a high suicide rate", said Egan. In less than a decade the rate of suicides in OH has gone up 36 percent meaning an average of about 5 people a day now die from suicide in Ohio.

Dr. Schabbing says she's not surprised by the new statistics but says they point to a need for more education and more conversations about suicide and some of the warning signs. But Dr Joshua Gordon, director of the National Institute of Mental Health, said that contradicts years of data, suggesting many have gone undiagnosed and untreated. Rates increased in all USA states except Nevada, where the rate was consistently high throughout the study period. "Focusing suicide prevention efforts exclusively in health care settings is insufficient".

Anthony Bourdain committed suicide the same week as Kate Spade, even as the CDC reported a rise in suicides across the country.

The increasing suicide rates are the result of a number of factors.

Reach out. Talk to a friend, neighbor or loved one who may be going through a hard time or who has battled mental illness.

"Comprehensive statewide suicide prevention activities are needed to address the full range of factors contributing to suicide", the report said.

If this person talks or behaves in a way that makes you believe that he or she may try to attempt suicide, then get help from a trained professional as quickly as possible. In addition, to better understand the circumstances surrounding suicide, they turned to more detailed information collected by 27 states on suicides that occurred in 2015.

"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.

Keltz believes talking about mental health and suicide will help erase the stigma associated with it.
