Report: Suicide rates in Hawaii on the rise

Suicide rates rose in almost every USA state from 1999 to 2016, with the rate spiking by more than 30 percent in half of the country, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported on Thursday.

US suicide rates have increased more than 25 percent since 1999, according a report released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But please listen to me- from someone who is telling you that she's been where you are- when I say that SUICIDE IS NOT THE RIGHT CHOICE.

"We learn the signs of stroke and we learn what skin cancer looks like", said Keltz.

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

Looking at CDC figures from 2014, suicide is the second leading cause of death among those aged 10-34. Significant changes in behavior or affect may be warning signs as well.

Talking about feeling hopeless or having no objective. Studies have debunked the idea that asking people whether they have thought about harming themselves will increase suicides or suicidal thoughts.

If a person talks about taking their life or feeling hopeless or withdraws from social activities.

Six years earlier in 2001, Tom O'Clair's 12-year-old son, Timothy, took his own life. "So it's always good to stay connected with people and sort of touch base".

In a public plea issued Friday, Jessica Henderson Daniel, president of the American Psychological Association, said, "The bad and tragic deaths of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain reflect a growing national crisis", adding that, "Suicide needs to be a public health priority".

So what can you do personally?

The CDC found that suicides had increased in every state except Nevada, where they decreased by 1 percent. Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman, chair of psychiatry at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center, says people may act depressed, become withdrawn or disinterested or make ominous comments before a suicide attempt. Listen to what they need.

"People should know that suicide is preventable".

The conference is open to the public.

"From individuals and communities to employers and healthcare professionals, everyone can play a role in efforts to help save lives and reverse this troubling rise in suicide".

If you have thoughts of suicide, confidential help is available for free at the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
