How to have tough conversations about mental health

Suicides have risen 30 percent since 1999

Every state but Nevada saw an increase in suicide rates during that time, the CDC reported. Ms. Spade and Mr. Bourdain are now among the approximately 45,000 suicides each year in the United States.

"Most people think it's teenagers and young people because that's what gets attention, but it's not", said Karen Heisig, a board member of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention in Rochester.

The topic of suicide is being discussed all across the country now, something that's more prevalent following the sudden deaths of celebrities like Kate Space and Anthony Bourdain. "There may be several, but we knew that economic factors can increase the risk of suicide and that limited access to care, behavioral and social services may also increase the risk of suicide", Schuchat said.

The report also states suicide rates went up more than 30% in half of the states since 1999.

A new report from the Centers for Disease Control shows the suicide rate grew 20 percent faster in Kansas than the national average.

According to the CDC report, the number of suicides has increased by more than 30 percent in half of the states in the us, and more than half of the people who died by suicide didn't have a known mental health condition.

The CDC, the top U.S. public health agency, said individual states need to do more to boost suicide prevention "and address the range of factors contributing to suicide". "They have a stereotype in their mind of the person who takes their life and why".

"The most important thing for people who have been ill enough for this to have been a risk is that they keep asking for help".

"Life is worth living and the pain that comes from losing somebody prematurely can be unbearable", he said. In contrast, 12 out of 100,000 people died from suicide in 2012.

"We need to educate them, and the people around them", Jafary explained.

"Those are the factors that we look at that makes someone vulnerable", said Polky.

Here in CT, the suicide rate is the highest it's been in almost 30 years. Dr. Cruz says suicide prevention is all about getting people the right information before it is too late.

If you have any thoughts of suicide or know of someone who needs help, you can reach out to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
