It shows the growing severity of the issue

An increase of greater than 30 percent in suicides was observed in 25 states.

Despite the increase, MA still has one of the nation's lowest per capita suicide rates, ranking 48th. In the East, Vermont, New Hampshire and SC saw dramatic spikes as well.

Twenty-five states had suicide-rate increases of more than 30 percent. Her husband, Andy Spade, has said she suffered from depression and anxiety for many years. Indeed, the report found that more than half of people who died by suicide did not have a diagnosed mental health condition at the time of their death.

A range of strategies could help prevent suicides, from expanding access to mental and behavioral health care to improving education around individual coping skills and institutional supports, the report says. The report recommends that prevention efforts focus "further upstream" on stresses such as job loss or divorce.

In 2016 almost 45,000 Americans aged 10 or older died by suicide, up from 41,149 suicides in 2013 - making it the 10th leading cause of death in the nation, according to the agency. The other two top 10 causes of death that are on the rise are Alzheimer's disease and drug overdoses, she noted.

Rates varied widely across the country during the study period, from 6.9 per 100,000 residents per year killing themselves in Washington, D.C., to 29.2 per 100,000 residents in Montana - the highest in the country, followed by Alaska and Wyoming.

Researchers looked at a 16-month time period between January 2015 and April 2016 when there were 61 deaths in New Orleans that were classified as suicides. "Men and Hispanics especially are less likely to seek help". The state has tried to tackle the problem with a website, https://massmen.org, that targets men in this age group.

In New Orleans, researchers led by Orleans Parish Coroner Dr. Jeffrey Rouse also recently studied the high rates of suicide in the city even a decade after Hurricane Katrina.

The state is rural, and studies show a connection between suicide and living in rural areas. The increase was higher for white males than any other race or gender group, however. "That's equalizing not because men are [committing suicide] less but women are doing it more".

Firearms were revealed to be the most common method of suicide by those with and without a known mental illness.

Vermont also has a high rate of binge drinking, and evidence suggests that people who drink too much are at higher risk of suicide. Habitual users of opioids were twice as likely to attempt suicide as people who did not use them.

The high suicide rate is also a concern in New Hampshire, said Patricia Tilley, deputy director of New Hampshire's division of public health services.

"Many of us have been personally impacted by this unfortunate reality", KDHE Chief Medical Officer said. The rural nature of the state cuts both ways, she said.

The report also cites the need to reduce "access to lethal means" but without explicitly discussing firearms or controversial issues such as gun control legislation.

Rhode Island and CT are among the 10 states with the lowest suicide rates, while ME is in the top quarter.

Overall, the rate rose to 15.4 per 100,000 in 2014-2016 from 12.3 per 100,000 in 1999-2001.

The rates of suicide for all states and the District of Columbia were calculated using data from the National Vital Statistics System.

Middle-aged adults - age 45 to 64 - had the largest rate increase, rising to 19.2 per 100,000 in 2016 from 13.2 in 1999.
