What to do if you suspect someone is suicidal

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the USA and rates have been climbing steadily for years.

In a concerning trend, deaths from suicide have increased in almost every USA state in recent years, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

"We learn the signs of stroke and we learn what skin cancer looks like", said Keltz.

The increasing suicide rates are the result of a number of factors.

"Suicide is more than a mental health issue", Schuchat said. While Nevada is making progress, there's still room for improvement.

Between 1999 and 2016, suicide increased across 49 states, with 25 of those seeing an increase by nearly a third, the CDC's Vital Signs report shows. Bourdain's death was also confirmed to be a suicide after his friend and fellow celebrity chef Eric Ripert found him unresponsive in his hotel room in France. I don't talk about him as a person who died by suicide because that was how he died. Increases ranged from just under 6 percent in DE to over 57 percent in North Dakota.

If they are abusing alcohol or drugs, sleeping too much or too little, giving away possessions - seem irritable, depressed or anxious.

"Any type of graphic reporting about suicide, even things that are spread on social media, can really influence people who are now struggling with thoughts about ending their life", Jennifer Sikora told KDKA's Jon Delano on Friday. "So it's always good to stay connected with people and sort of touch base". However, teens who aren't likely to reach out could be internalizing what they see.

"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.

- Ask them if they are thinking about killing themselves.

Thomas Delaney, a faculty member at the University of Vermont's Larner College of Medicine who studies suicide, said Thursday that several aspects of Vermont life have been linked to higher rates of suicide. Listen to what they need.

Keltz believes talking about mental health and suicide will help erase the stigma associated with it.

The Oregon Health Authority has placed a particularly high priority on preventing suicides among children and young adults.

The cost is $80 for both mornings of speakers and training registration fees.

Take the person to an emergency room or seek help from a medical or mental health professional.

"I urge anyone who is struggling with suicidal thoughts or anxious about someone else to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255". All calls are confidential and anonymous. Mental health problems, often undiagnosed, are usually involved and experts say knowing warning signs and who is at risk can help stop a crisis from becoming a tragedy.
