It shows the growing severity of the issue

Of the 25 states where the suicide rate increase by more than 30 percent, the most noticeable rises occurred in western states. Those two states also experienced the second and third biggest increases, more than 48 percent, in the period studied by the CDC.

The most common method used across all groups was firearms.

"American suicide is predominantly a firearm issue".

In a year, millions more consider, plan and attempt to kill themselves. Almost 45,000 suicides occurred in the United States in 2016 - more than twice the number of homicides - making it the 10th-leading cause of death.

"If you think of [suicide] as other leading causes of death, like AIDS and cancer, with the public health approach, mortality rates decline", Moutier said. Spade's death on Tuesday marked the third fashion icon to have died by hanging in recent years, following L'Wren Scott's 2014 death, and Alexander McQueen's in 2010. The designer's husband, Andy Spade, has said she suffered from depression and anxiety for many years.

The study also comes a day after Netflix announced plans for a third season of its hit series "13 Reasons Why", which focuses on a high schooler's suicide.

"Suicide can happen to anybody", Schuchat said, stressing that it's important to reach out when family and loves ones are dealing with life stresses like losing a job, ending a romantic relationship, or struggling with money.

'If we step back from the statistics, mental health does not discriminate, ' said Dr Shainna Ali, a Florida psychologist. "That's equalizing not because men are [committing suicide] less but women are doing it more".

'Conditions like postpartum depression and menopause [may put some women at a higher risk], and, for women in general, stereotypes of being the flawless mom and employee, the stigma associated with a need to "balance" all of that can cause pressure as well, ' said Dr Ali.

Kaslow is particularly concerned about what has emerged with suicide among women.

Approximately half of those who committed suicide did not have a known mental health condition.

"Any life stressors that are weighing on someone who has a history of or is now struggling with their mental health - that's a person who you have to be anxious about", said psychiatrist Catherine Birndorf.

To the knowledge of her family and investigators, Spade did not have a previously diagnosed mental health condition, though her sister Reta Saffro has said she suspected that Spade had begun drinking heavily as a way to cope.

The number of self-inflicted deaths in 2016 - roughly the equivalent of the entire population of Murray, Utah - placed suicide as the 10th leading cause of death in the United States.

In light of its findings, the CDC has also released an accompanying 'technical package, ' which details the agency's recommenced policies and programs.

Accomplishing this, according to the CDC, has to be accomplished by work in a number of avenues. "We need to learn more about why New Hampshire has been experiencing these higher rates", she said. Together, loss of housing and financial issues played a role in 20 percent of the 2016 suicides not attributed to mental health issues.

"Look for those warning signs in people you love and care for", Schuchat said.
