  • How to get help for someone who may be suicidal

The findings were released days after the deaths of famed designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain brought the issue of suicide to the fore.

Suicide rates have risen between 1999 and 2006 in all USA states except Nevada, impacting women, men, children, and people of different ethnicity and race.

"We don't know what's going on inside of someone", Ramsey says.

Previous research has indicated that people living in rural areas - about 20 percent of the US population - are at greater risk of suicide than those living in urban areas.

Between 1999 and 2016, suicide rates in Minnesota increased across age, sex and racial groups. Both deaths were identified as suicides. Other issues, including relationship problems, substance abuse, physical health problems, job- or money-related stress, legal or housing problems often contributed to risk for suicide, the report found.

"It's very individual and I think that's why we miss it", said Keltz.

And the crisis line includes something rarely available outside Colorado: a peer-support line.

Experts note that mental illness may have been underreported in the study, either because the person who killed themself had not yet been diagnosed or because those left behind were not aware their loved one's condition.

Twenty-five states recorded jumps of more than 30 percent.

"We believe mental health is important and it's something our communities and government need to invest in", Whitty said.

The Mental Health Association Oklahoma will be offering three suicide prevention trainings next week that are free and open to the public.

However, before a trained specialist can take their first call they are required to go through an extensive 100 hour training.

Extensively reported cases can make suicide seem to be more of "a viable option" if rich, famous people "who seem like they have it all" made that decision, said Theresa Buhse, associate executive director of the Long Island Crisis Center in Bellmore.

Such pathways are in progress, Brummett said.

" The Maryland chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention offers resources for people in need, including phone numbers for suicide prevention hotlines and links to find mental health professionals". More funding to flesh out the programs is on the way, but work is already in progress.
