Anthony Bourdain's death impacts local community

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States, and just one of three leading causes of death that's on the rise, according to the CDC.

The 1999 to 2016 suicide-rate increase varied widely by state, from a low of 6percent in DE to more than 57 percent in North Dakota; in Washington state, it was 18.8 percent.

The CDC found that between 1999 and 2016, suicide rates rose by 25.4 percent nationally.

Dr. Anne Schuchat, CDC principal deputy director, stressed that suicide is a national issue and no one community is immune.

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

45,000 lives aged 10 or older were lost to suicide in 2016 and 54% of those who died from suicide deaths did not have a known mental health condition. And suicidal ideation can arise from a plethora of quotidian experiences that aren't commonly documented or recognized as actionable mental health issues: financial distress, relationship crises, substance abuse, and so on. The others are Alzheimer's disease and drug overdoses.

Health professionals didn't offer a reason for the increase but said suicides rarely result from a single factor.

The CDC is hoping future research delves into the specific causes of suicide trends, as NVDRS was capable of providing significant insight into decedent characteristics in more than half of the states.

"We have a long way to go to strengthen our community and health systems to make sure when someone is at risk we get them to care", Jerry Reed, an executive committee member of the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention, told The Wall Street Journal. And almost half of those states had an increase of more than 30 percent. Bourdain's death was also confirmed to be a suicide after his friend and fellow celebrity chef Eric Ripert found him unresponsive in his hotel room in France. 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 2012 CDC study of 17 states found that workers in farming, fishing and forestry had the highest rate of suicide - about 84.5 per 100,000 people.

"People are so moved by what Anthony taught them".

In 2015, most of the people who died by their own hands had alcohol or some sort drug in their blood, including tranquilizers like Valium or Xanax, and opioids. Ask if they are having suicidal thoughts. Rates ranged from 6.9 per 100,000 in the District of Columbia to 29.2 in Montana.

"Suicide does tend to rise during the holidays or at least that's what some early reports said". Joel Dvoskin, a psychologist at the University of Arizona Medical School, also says you should listen more than you talk.

Dr Ali stresses that the primary goal should be to "empower" people to recognize the signs of suicide risk in themselves and others in order to put a stop to the rising rates of suicide in the US.

Staley also pointed out that in states like Utah, people are more likely to have access to one of the most common methods for deaths by suicide: firearms. "He didn't get to see me talking about suicide prevention now and sharing my story". "I urge anyone who is struggling with suicidal thoughts or anxious about someone else to call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255".
