Suicide rates rose in every state across the nation except Nevada between 1999 and 2016, according to a new graphic released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Suicide is "a tragedy for families and communities across the country", Dr. Anne Schuchat, the principal deputy director of the CDC, said in a statement. They said news reporting in graphic detail about celebrity suicides was another contributor.

Despite this, she said there are studies that show a rise in teen suicide during the time the series began streaming. In the one-year analysis of 27 states, opioids were found in 31 percent of the 3,003 suicides involving drug overdoses.

'If we step back from the statistics, mental health does not discriminate, ' said Dr Shainna Ali, a Florida psychologist.

Summers said the key takeaway from the report is that the entire country is experiencing greater suicide rates than in the past.

The increasing rate comes as no surprise to those who work to prevent suicide. For half of the states, the increase exceeded 30 percent.

MA experienced a 35 percent increase in suicides from 1999 to 2016, but its suicide rate remains comparatively low: 10 per 100,000 people in 2014-2016, compared with 15.4 per 100,000 for the nation as a whole.

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States, and just one of three leading causes of death that's on the rise, according to the CDC.

"Our data suggests that suicide is more than a mental health issue", Schuchat said. The increase was higher for white males than any other race or gender group, however. In half of all states, suicide rates increased by 30% or more.

Guns were the most common method used for suicide, accounting for nearly half of the people who died. That are traumatic for people such as loss of a relationship, death of a loved one, loss of a job, major things that happen in your life that are hard to deal with.

The CDC reports that suicides from opioid overdoses almost doubled between 1999 and 2014. The numbers were highest among non-Hispanic whites, and among those ages 45 to 65 years old.

Researchers looked at a 16-month time period between January 2015 and April 2016 when there were 61 deaths in New Orleans that were classified as suicides.

The reason for this is relatively simple: Unlike other common methods of suicide, firing a gun is an immediate, irreversible, and reliably lethal act.

The data also shows that about 22%-24% of people who died by suicide, regardless of whether or not they had a diagnosed mental health condition, disclosed their intent at some point, underscoring the importance of taking such comments seriously.

Effective strategies, she said, included teaching coping and problem-solving skills to those at risk, establishing more social "connectedness", and safe storage of pills and guns. "Instead, these folks were suffering from other issues, such as relationship problems, substance misuse, physical health problems, job or financial problems, and recent crises or things that were coming up in their lives that they were anticipating", says Stone.

'Conditions like postpartum depression and menopause [may put some women at a higher risk], and, for women in general, stereotypes of being the ideal mom and employee, the stigma associated with a need to "balance" all of that can cause pressure as well, ' said Dr Ali.
