Twenty-five states experienced a rise in suicides by more than 30 percent, the government report finds.

For those who are contemplating suicide, Litovski says they try to connect them with resources like counselors, even hospitals if necessary.

According to the study, the rate of suicide in the USA rose almost 30 percent between 1999 and 2016.

"Suicide is a leading cause of death for Americans - and it's a tragedy for families and communities across the country", CDC Principal Deputy Director Anne Schuchat said.

The Minnesota Health Department has increased efforts to identify at-risk communities to help reduce suicides. In 2016 alone, nearly 45,000 U.S. citizens over the age of 10 died by suicide.

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US and rates have been climbing steadily for years.

On Thursday, the CDC released a report showing every state has seen an increase over the past two decades; every state except for Nevada.

They say the recession, housing stress, relationship problems and substance abuse are all contributing factors to a recent increase in suicides. Due to the value they place on independence, they are unlikely to seek help, United Health Care reports. "We should also be learning what mental health is and what symptoms we can look for in ourselves as well as others". In the one-year analysis of 27 states, opioids were found in 31 percent of the 3,003 suicides involving drug overdoses.

"I have lived with anxiety and sporadic bouts of depression for most of my adult life", Munn wrote alongside a post listing worldwide suicide hotlines.

"We are highly aware we still have high rates, but we will never give up".

If you or anyone you know may be at risk of suicide, call the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-273-8255 or message the Crisis Text Line "GOT5" to 741-741.

"If you think about if you've ever broken something or had a bad migraine or gone through labor, you want those pains to stop but you know they're going to stop", she said.

The national attention following the suicides of Bourdain and Spade has meant an increase in calls to suicide hotlines like the one here in Philadelphia, which is staffed 24/7 by experts who can help you out in any crisis.
