It shows the growing severity of the issue

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.

One factor in the rising rate, say mental health professionals as well as economists, sociologists and epidemiologists, is the Great Recession that hit 10 years ago.

Vermont is home to a high proportion of white people, and whites as a group have higher suicide rates than ethnic groups. Habitual users of opioids were twice as likely to attempt suicide as people who did not use them.

The study also comes a day after Netflix announced plans for a third season of its hit series "13 Reasons Why", which focuses on a high schooler's suicide. The CDC has calculated that suicides from opioid overdoses almost doubled between 1999 and 2014, and data from a 2014 national survey showed that individuals addicted to prescription opioids had a 40 percent to 60 percent higher risk of suicidal ideation. In 1999, then-Surgeon General David Satcher issued a report on the state of mental health in the country and called suicide "a significant public health problem".

The state is rural, and studies show a connection between suicide and living in rural areas.

'This kind of "perfectionism" not only affects women, but, in light of Spade's suicide, it is something we can highlight, ' she added'.

"Historically, men had higher death rates than women", she noted. "That is very, very troublesome". The CDC suggests people learn the warning signs and how to respond, "reduce access to lethal means", including medication and firearms, and keep handy the number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, manned around the clock to talk to those who are considering suicide or know someone who is.

The rate of suicide deaths has been rising across the US since at least 1999, according to new data released Thursday. "They make sure that they are getting the help that they need".

"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. Men age 35 to 65 are less likely to seek help when in distress.

Many people who died by suicide, according to the report, had recently experienced hard life events such as relationship problems, physical ailments, financial stress and job or home loss. Together, loss of housing and financial issues played a role in 20 percent of the 2016 suicides not attributed to mental health issues. "What are we doing as a nation to help people to manage these things?" Rates ranged from 6.9 per 100,000 in the District of Columbia to 29.2 per 100,000 in Montana. In addition, to better understand the circumstances surrounding suicide, they turned to more detailed information collected by 27 states on suicides that occurred in 2015.

These rates have climbed most steeply since 1999 among people between ages 45 and 64, according to the latest Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statistics.
