How to get help for someone who might be suicidal

The CDC found 55 percent of suicides where the person was not known to have a mental health condition were carried out using firearms, and 45 percent of those who did have a diagnosed mental health issue.

Suicide rose in every state except Nevada, where the slight decline was largely due to a consistently high rate of suicides there - 23.1 per 100,000.

"We don't have all the answers". Georgia's increase was 16.2 percent.

Veterans are also "overrepresented" in the report, she said. If they do say they have a plan or a means, you want to take that away. Still, the researchers found a 10 percent higher risk of suicide among people who had served in the military.

Middle-age adults had the highest increase. A day after the report was published, celebrity chef and writer Anthony Bourdain also died by an apparent suicide. She believes this group may have been hardest-hit by the economic downturn, but she added that unknown factors probably contributed.

As suicide becomes more of a public health problem, there are a number of organizations that provide free support for people in need.

Prevention efforts, often focused on mental health, could be broadened to focus on people undergoing life stresses like job losses or divorces, the CDC's Dr. Anne Schuchat said in a media briefing.

Loved ones might not have been aware of a mental health condition.

CDC is very good about aggressive over-diagnosis in some areas, e-cigarettes and pre-diabetes are prominent examples where they defied the science consensus to embrace the precautionary principle, so it is inconsistent to be urging caution about the role of mental health in suicides.

Dr. Christine Moutier, a psychiatrist and chief medical officer for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, said Friday it's important for everyone to know the warning signs and to intervene when family members, friends or co-workers appear troubled. The possibility of "someone seeing your auto parked at the only psychologist's office" means rural residents are less likely to seek care when needed.

"The shocking statistic is to see Oklahoma's rate has changed so significantly", said Julie Summers, Mental Health Association Oklahoma's director of outreach and prevention.

In a lengthy post - which is accompanied by a list of worldwide suicide hotlines - Munn wrote: "I have lived with anxiety and sporadic bouts of depression for most of my adult life".

The CDC said suicides were rarely caused by any single issue.

"There's been an increasing awareness of helping people in the restaurant business deal with depression, drugs and alcohol, and suicide", Fuller said. In fact, it is this need to always make their life look so ideal that adds an extra burden to the celebrity's life.
