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.

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.

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.
