The CDC released a report showing suicides are up more than 30 percent in half of the states since 1999.

Among the stark numbers in the CDC report was the one signaling a high number of suicides among people without a known mental health condition. A little over half of the suicides, 54 percent, committed suicide with no known previous mental health issues.

"These findings are disturbing", Schuchat says.

Suicide prevention largely focuses on addressing mental health treatment, the CDC found, suggesting that a wider variety of preventive measures could be taken.

Other factors include the crisis in the past or upcoming two weeks (29 percent), use of a substance (28 percent), physical health problems (22 percent), work or financial problems (16 percent), a criminal legal problem (9 percent), and loss of housing (4 percent).

Suicide rate increases ranged from just under 6 percent in DE to over 57 percent in North Dakota, the report said.

Indeed, it's reported that his weekly wage will be somewhere near the £200,000 mark once all relevant bonuses are chucked in. Now Tottenham have a forward who has scored at least 25 goals in the Premier League alone in each of his last three seasons.

Leblanc says the state, and country, need to beef up their suicide detection efforts, increase the amount of mental health education, and expand mental health services, but that's tough to do under a budget crunch.

Dagle said she believes numerous victims of suicide die partly because they are prevented by social pressure from seeking help.

Reduce access to lethal means - such as medications and firearms - among people at risk of suicide.

"Death by suicide is the ultimate Stage 4 event in the progression of many mental health conditions, whether or not they have ever been recognized and labeled".

Most of the suicide victims in that age range were men. Firearms was the most common method used by both groups, followed by suffocation, poisoning and "other". "People are going to get help", Reidenberg said. She's urging the media to be careful with what they say. Publicity surrounding a suicide has been repeatedly and definitively linked to a subsequent increase in suicide, especially among young people. "We know that same approach can work with suicide". The latest data at that time showed about 30,000 suicides a year. "And so a report like this really draws attention to the fact that we need to do a whole lot more to prevent suicide, to save lives". KDADS also offers training regarding suicide prevention.

But Joshua Gordon, director of the National Institute of Mental Health, said that that statistic must be viewed in context. "What are we doing as a nation to help people to manage these things?"
