It is now the 10-leading cause of death in the US, and is one of only three leading causes of death that are on the rise. The suicide rate has risen in almost every state over the past 20 years, with half the states, including Pennsylvania, seeing increases of 30 percent or more, according to the report.
Suicide is "a tragedy for families and communities across the country", said CDC principal deputy director Anne Schuchat.
MA experienced a 35 percent increase in suicides from 1999 to 2016, but its suicide rate remains comparatively low: 10 per 100,000 people in 2014-2016, compared with 15.4 per 100,000 for the nation as a whole. The others include Alzheimer's disease and drug overdoses.

That figure still ranks only 38th among states, but the state's 40 percent increase since 1999 was the eighth-steepest rise. Suicide by asphyxiation or suffocation was the second most common cause of death during that time period.
Additionally, the report looked at the rates of emergency department visits for nonfatal self-harm, a major risk factor for suicide, which rose by 42 percent from 2001 to 2016.

"We do see increases in suicide associated with economic downturns, and it can take a long time for the recovery to kick in", Schuchat said. She says building a relationship and working together to solve their problems can open them up to the idea of using you as a release tool or someone to share their fears with.
Dr Ali stresses that the primary goal should be to "empower" people to recognize the signs of suicide risk in themselves and others in order to put a stop to the rising rates of suicide in the US.
