"Any change in behavior patterns, withdrawing, sadness, irritability, anger, and losing their temper more quickly - those would all be indicators that possibly that person's mental health is deteriorating", says Dr. Christine Moutier of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

Deaths by suicide have increased by around 30% since 1999, claiming almost 45,000 lives in 2016, according to the report.

From 2014 through 2016, Oklahoma's per capita average was 23.5 suicides per 100,000 people, up from 17.0 from 1999 through 2001.

But the according to the report, more than half of people who died by suicide did not have a known mental health condition.

Experts say the recession, housing stress, relationship problems and substance abuse are all contributing factors.

"Research for many years and across social and health science fields has demonstrated a strong relationship between economic downturns and an increase in deaths due to suicide", Sarah Burgard, an associate professor of sociology at the University of MI, told the Washington Post. "We want improved access to care and better diagnostics, but we think that a comprehensive approach to suicide is what is needed".

Among decedents aged 18 years or older, 20.1% of those without known mental health conditions and 15.3% of those with had served in the U.S. military.

Thomas Delaney, a faculty member at the University of Vermont's Larner College of Medicine who studies suicide, said Thursday that several aspects of Vermont life have been linked to higher rates of suicide. "Over time, I figured out and learned through trial and error what worked for me to get past that feeling", said Mike Bushman of Naperville. While the study did not look at the potential reasons why that might be, Schuchat offered a possible explanation. Her husband, Andy Spade, has said she suffered from depression and anxiety for many years.

The report found that firearms were the most common method of suicide for both those with and without mental illnesses. A 2017 study in the journal Social Science and Medicine showed evidence that a rise in the foreclosure rate during that concussive downturn was associated with an overall, though marginal, increase in suicide rates.

- A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows a troubling rise in the nation's suicide rates. Wisconsin and IL saw an increase from 19 to 30 percent.

Only Nevada saw a decline, and that was just one percent.

The CDC recommends that the government, health care system, employers, schools, and community organizations treat suicide as a public health issue and provides resources on its website.

The Minnesota Health Department has increased efforts to identify at-risk communities to help reduce suicides.

If you are having thoughts of harming yourself or thinking about suicide, talk to someone who can help, such as a trusted loved one, your doctor, your licensed mental health professional if you already have one, or go to the nearest hospital emergency department. Guns are still the most common means of suicide, accounting for about half of all suicide deaths in the US.

If you or someone you know needs help, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). All calls are confidential.
