The 'trend' that is troubling the US

STASI Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade had it all — or so we thought

A US report released in June 2018 found an uptick in suicide rates in almost every state since 1999. "Anyone contemplating suicide should know that help is available, and that there is no shame in seeking care for your mental health", Dr. Altha Stewart of the American Psychiatric Association said in a statement.

In an era of cell phones and when suicide prevention is a Google search away, an expert says as connected as we are, we are probably more isolated than we've ever been. Suicide is now the tenth leading cause of death in the country, and one of only three on the rise, in addition to Alzheimer's and drug overdoses.

In a 2016 report, the CDC found that USA suicide rates jumped 24 percent from 1999 to 2014. The state also has a higher rate of suicide among young people. The older they get the less control they have over their own lives. "Suicide is a public health crisis when you look at the numbers, and they keep going up".

"I think about it all day", he said.

They say the recession, housing stress, relationship problems and substance abuse are all contributing factors to a recent increase in suicides. She hopes anyone suffering will search for help and find the right person to talk to.

"My dad was just a happy-go-lucky guy - very laid-back", Winter said. "I just want to see how this goes", said counselor Serge Levin.

The CDC report comes at a time of heightened attention to the issue with the suicides this week of designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef and CNN correspondent Anthony Bourdain. Her husband said in a statement on Wednesday that she had suffered from depression and anxiety for many years.

Overall, the rate rose to 15.4 per 100,000 in 2014-2016 from 12.3 per 100,000 in 1999-2001. The rates varied widely from state to state: 6.9 per 100,000 residents a year in the District of Columbia to 29.2 per 100,000 in Montana.

In the year 2016 alone, 45,000 people died from suicide and Schuchat warned, "Our data show the problem is getting worse".

Locally, suicide rates in MA rose 35.3 percent between the years of 2009 and 2016; in New Hampshire suicides increased a staggering 48.3 percent over those seven years. A study by the Journal of Psychiatric Research found prescription opioid misuse was associated with a 40-60 percent increase in the risk of suicidal thoughts.
