CDC report reveals more than 45,000 Americans took their own lives in 2016

US suicide rates increased more than 25% since 1999, CDC says

SC accounted for one of the few states were it rose dramatically, increasing 38.3 percent, according to CDC statistics.

More than half who died by suicide did not have a diagnosed mental health condition. According to the data, almost 45,000 Americans age 10 or older died by suicide in 2016, making it the 10 leading cause of death.

The number of self-inflicted deaths in 2016 - roughly the equivalent of the entire population of Murray, Utah - placed suicide as the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. In 2016, the Palmetto State's suicide rate peaked at 15.6 deaths per 100,000 people. Rates have risen steadily in most age and ethnic groups, even as rates of psychiatric treatment and diagnosis have also greatly increased.

"Suicide is a leading cause of death for Americans, and it's a tragedy for families and communities across the country", Dr. Anne Schuchat, the CDC's principal deputy director, said in a statement.

Guns were used in about half of all suicides, according to the "Vital Signs" report, followed by hanging and then poisoning and overdoses.

A range of strategies could help prevent suicides, from expanding access to mental and behavioral health care to improving education around individual coping skills and institutional supports, the report says. She said it's a myth that to broach the topic of suicide will invite someone to do so or put the thought in their head. But other problems - such as the loss of a relationship, financial setbacks, substance abuse and eviction - were common precursors, both among those who had a mental health diagnosis and those who did not.

In 2016, 745 suicides were reported in Minnesota.

Microsoft Announces "the Biggest Xbox Sale of the Year"
In the lead-up to E3, Microsoft has a sale that it's calling "The Biggest Xbox Sale of the Year ". For instance, Walmart now has the Xbox One S 1TB Minecraft Edition Bundle for $249.

The highest rise was seen in western states, with an over 57 percent increase recorded in North Dakota. IN was even higher, experiencing an increase of suicides from 31 to 37 percent. It found that 54 percent of suicide victims did not have a known mental health condition.

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.

To be fair, the CDC does issue a mild recommendation regarding guns in its press release announcing the study: "Reduce access to lethal means - such as medications and firearms - among people at risk of suicide".

"I think it's a tragic statistic, and it points to the fact that we need to redouble our efforts at suicide prevention", Summers said.

Vermont also has a high rate of binge drinking, and evidence suggests that people who drink too much are at higher risk of suicide.

'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.

Ask someone you're anxious about if they're thinking about suicide. Be there with them, and listen to them. 4. "They're in a lot of psychic pain and they want to feel better and move past that pain". The report also called for greater promotion of the national suicide prevention hotline across the state, especially in rural areas. However, teens who aren't likely to reach out could be internalizing what they see.
