"American suicide is predominantly a firearm issue".

The suicide rate is up in almost every state since 1999, including Pennsylvania, where it has risen by more than 30 percent, according to a report released Thursday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The overall rise nationwide is about 25%.

More than half of suicides in 2015 in a subgroup of 27 states were among people with no known mental health condition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found. Suicide is rarely caused by any single factor, health officials said, but information from coroners' reports suggest numerous deaths followed relationship problems, substance use and financial crises. Although mental health conditions are a significant risk factor, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that more than half of people who died by suicide in a recent study did not have a known preexisting mental health condition. From 1999 to 2015, suicide rates increased among all genders, all racial and ethnic groups and all urbanization levels.

Suicide is now the 10th leading cause of death in the country.

Roughly 80 percent of Oregonians who die by suicide are male, and rates are highest among men age 75 and older. The rural nature of the state cuts both ways, she said. People also tend to be more isolated, without access to proper care.

It is hitting many places especially hard.

"Our mental health systems are just really struggling across the country", Prof Cerel says. "We can't expect a major public health problem like this to be addressed unless we see the investment".

In fact, two-thirds of gun-related deaths in America are suicides, according to the CDC.

"We just don't talk about that in the USA because there are stigmas against mental health". Habitual users of opioids were twice as likely to attempt suicide as people who did not use them.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness suggests removing means to suicide such as guns or pills; talking openly on the topic and asking a person if they are having thoughts of suicide; asking what you can do to help and then carefully listening to the answer.

"We genuinely discourage young men from help seeking", he said.

"Any life stressors that are weighing on someone who has a history of or is now struggling with their mental health - that's a person who you have to be anxious about", said psychiatrist Catherine Birndorf. "They might actually bring up specifically that they're thinking of suicide".

It was nine years ago when Bourdain spoke at the Connecticut Forum and for Ruth Cullen, it's a night that's still seared into her memory. That number has remained steady over recent decades, she said.

"If they have no family members to talk to at the scene, they have no idea if mental health was the case. Some coroners go back and do a thorough investigation, some don't". Other contributing factors to suicide can include substance use, financial issues and physical health. If you know someone at risk of suicide, there are five steps you can take: 1.

"The data supports what we know about that notion", Gordon said.
