"Suicide in this country really is a problem that is impacted by so many factors".

"There is no single cause for a death by suicide, but rather a confluence of factors that lead someone to exceed their capacity for emotional pain", the release stated.

"It's just one of those things you can't hardly believe", said Culbreath. "It points to the need for a comprehensive approach to prevention". The cause of death was suicide.

CDC officials said suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. almost 45,000 people died by suicide nationwide in 2016, the report found.

In that time period, Tennessee's suicide rate rose 24.2 percent. One meta-analysis looking at 10 studies of the aftermath of 98 celebrity deaths found a 0.26 percent rise in suicide rates in the months after celebrities kill themselves. What's more, over half of the people who died did not have any known mental health conditions.

Relationship problems or loss, substance misuse; physical health problems; and job, money, legal or housing stress often contributed to risk for suicide.

The study's findings suggest more must be done to prevent suicide and work should extend beyond those diagnosed with a mental illness, Schuchat said. "Suicide is a public health crisis when you look at the numbers, and they keep going up". "Opioids were present in 31% of individuals who died by poisoning". Information about contributing circumstances for those who died by suicide was obtained via the National Violent Death Reporting System, which is relatively new and in place in only 27 states.

Among the agency's recommendations: Reduce a high-risk person's access to lethal items such as medications and firearms. The highest suicide rate increase was in North Dakota, at 57.6 percent, while the lowest was in DE, at 5.9 percent.

Kaslow is particularly concerned about what's emerged with suicide among women. Churches, schools and police also need to get better at recognizing people at risk for suicide and helping them get treatment or feel less isolated, he said. "The conversation about firearms and suicide doesn't have to be a debate about the Second Amendment".

Dr. Christine Moutier is the Chief Medical Officer at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

"You may be thinking about it over time, but that moment when you actually make an attempt is a very short window", he explains. "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. "And there's good research to support that". "I didn't know them until later on when I thought back about it", said Culbreath. "We can't expect a major public health problem like this to be addressed unless we see the investment".

The most recent data from 211 shows a 25% increase in the number of calls about suicide between 2016 and 2017.

All states except Nevada experienced an increase; although Nevada showed a 1% decrease in suicide, the state's suicide rate was still high, ranging between 21 and 23 suicides for every 100,000 people through the years studied, the researchers say.

Middle-age adults had the highest increase. What impact might news coverage of a suicide have on other people's trying or committing suicide?

STONE: Half of states actually saw rates of suicide increase more than 30 percent. Its suicide rate went up nearly 58 percent.
