The 'trend' that is troubling the US

US suicide rate on rise: health agency Suicide Rates Increase in Nearly All States

Between 1999 and 2016, suicide rates in these states, along with Vermont, New Hampshire and SC, rose 38 percent to 58 percent.

Research shows suicides are up in nearly every state across the country.

Death from suicide has risen by 34 percent since 1999 in Pennsylvania. Georgia's increase was 16.2 percent. Rates increased significantly among males in 34 states and females in 43 states.

The latest report, released Thursday, found that 45,000 people died by suicide in 2018.

Suicide is "a tragedy for families and communities across the country", Dr. Anne Schuchat, the principal deputy director of the CDC, said in a statement.

An individual who has mental health condition was also urged to talk to someone from their religious community whom they trust or join a support group.

While prevention efforts mainly focus on identifying and providing treatment for people with mental illness, experts say suicide is rarely caused by a single factor. The findings point to the need to both prevent the circumstances associated with the onset of mental health conditions-such as relationship, financial or criminal problems-and support those with a known mental conditions to decrease the risk of suicide, the CDC said. "Suicide is one of the top 10 causes of death in the USA right now, and it's one of three causes that is actually increasing recently, so we do consider it a public health problem - and something that is all around us".

The Trench character was slated to become a regular character in Bond films, but Goldfinger director Guy Hamilton nixed the plan. No, curvy Sylvia Trench, threw the first James Bond , Sean Connery , a line that caused him to respond famously.

"We need to have people understand that just because there was a high profile death by suicide it doesn't mean it has to be your outcome, too", he said.

Among the report's findings was that almost half of people who took their own lives used a gun.

CDC is very good about aggressive over-diagnosis in some areas, e-cigarettes and pre-diabetes are prominent examples where they defied the science consensus to embrace the precautionary principle, so it is inconsistent to be urging caution about the role of mental health in suicides.

"I think when someone considers suicide they think it's their only option and it's a scary option but the pain they're going through has gotten them to that place", Litovski says.

If you or someone you love needs help, the National Suicide Prevention hotline is 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or text "talk" to 741741.

Every month, the crisis center at Journey Mental Health receives 3,000 phone calls.
