Kate Spade's Sales Have Increased By 600% Following Her Death

Nationwide, the study said, the suicide rate rose by almost 30% over the same 17-year period, 1999 to 2016. That continues a trend that began after 2010 when the number of suicides was 606.

In its alarming new report on America's fast-rising suicide rate, the Centers for Disease Control cites many pressures that might lead people to take their own lives: problems with relationships or work, substance abuse, money troubles, or housing insecurity. "Those can all be risk factors", Kajimura said.

"Those are a few things we might point to", she added.

Mental illness, including depression and anxiety, is a major risk factor for suicide.

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. But Dr. Schuchat said the decrease was minor for a state with a high suicide rate.

Montana recorded the highest rate of 29.2 suicides per 100,000, and Washington, D.C., the lowest, at 6.9 suicides per 100,000 people.

The CDC report, which was released this week, did not give a reason for the uptick in suicides.

The report says entire communities should be involved in preventing suicide.

There are financial and structural impediments to seeking help, but there are also cultural barriers. And men, who make up 84 percent of those with no known diagnosed mental health condition are particularly socialized to not seek help. Studies have shown that 80 percent of all suicide attempts are done in the spur of the moment. "It is just so sad I can't believe it", Zien said.

Suicide rates are up 31 percent over the last 15 years, and many employees, underpaid and overworked, are stressed.

"There were 25 states that had increases of more than 30% - that was a new finding for us".

So they say the most important thing to do, is know the warning signs, and help someone get the help they need.

Staley said there is truth in Stone's analysis, though he argues the Great Recession and the opioid crisis do not paint a complete picture because both similarly impacted other regions of the country who did not see such drastic increases. Experts in the field have speculated the reported rate of 1 in every 400 physicians committing suicide is an underestimate, pointing to differing death classifications in known cases. It was also the 10th leading cause of death in 2015, reports CNN.

Reidenberg understands the complexities of suicides, pointing out there are nearly always multiple causes, including mental illnesses, substance abuse, a life change such as a job loss or a break up.

Bourdain and Spade died at 61 and 55, respectively - an age cohort with strikingly high suicide rates in the USA, according to the CDC. You can also text "START" to 741741, the Crisis Text Line.

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.
