  • How to look for suicide warning signs

Zallar said suicide is a challenging topic to talk about but it's important. "It points to the need for a comprehensive approach to prevention".

"A celebrity's suicide can create a contagion that we want to be aware of and those individuals who are a risk, who might be connected to that celebrity, we want to reach out to them", Egan said. Data shows that high-profile suicides lead to a rise in copycat deaths.

Reidenberg understands the complexities of suicides, pointing out there are nearly always multiple causes, including mental illnesses, substance abuse, a life change such as a job loss or a break up. New York City's chief medical examiner ruled that Spade's death earlier this week was also a suicide. Now this new report from CDC shows the suicide rate across the country is on the rise. I don't talk about him as a person who died by suicide because that was how he died. The report says that substance abuse, financial stress, and relationship problems or loss all contribute to suicide risk. Society must take a closer look at the issue and focus more efforts on suicide prevention, she said.

The CDC notes that suicide is rarely caused by a single factor or life event; and in fact, more than half of those who died by suicide actually did not have a known diagnosed mental health condition at the time of death (54%), according to the report. Kansas saw a 45 percent increase in the number of people who took their own lives over the past 17 years.

The report also cites the need to reduce "access to lethal means" but without explicitly discussing firearms or controversial issues such as gun control legislation.

Despite the increase, MA still has one of the nation's lowest per capita suicide rates, ranking 48th. They are part of a task force that work with patients, in the upstate, struggling with mental health problems.

Mental Health First Aid: 8-hour sessions give people a 5-step action plan that includes the skills, resources, and knowledge to recognize if someone needs help and how to get it for them. "And there's good research to support that".

The high suicide rate is also a concern in New Hampshire, said Patricia Tilley, deputy director of New Hampshire's division of public health services. "There are some for youth, but they're very, very tiny", says Gebbia. "We can't expect a major public health problem like this to be addressed unless we see the investment".

In Oregon, two people on average lose their lives to suicide each day, making self-harm one of the leading causes of death.
