What to do if you suspect someone is suicidal

What to do if you suspect someone is suicidal

Suicide is now the 10th leading cause of death and one of just three leading causes on the rise.

The most extreme increase from 1999 to 2016 was in North Dakota, with a 57.6 percent rise. In the US, to nobody's surprise, firearms are the most commonly used method, accounting for 41 percent of suicides of people with known mental-health conditions, and 55 percent of those without, according to the CDC report.

Almost 45,000 Americans age 10 or older died by suicide in 2016, according to the CDC.

Among those who committed suicide and who had known mental health conditions, 67.2% had a history of treatment for mental health or substance abuse conditions, and 54 percent were in treatment at the time of their suicide.

"There's been an increasing awareness of helping people in the restaurant business deal with depression, drugs and alcohol, and suicide", Fuller said. And if someone is at immediate risk of harming him or herself, Kaslow says, it's best to seek care from an emergency department or primary care doctor.

Mental Health First Aid: 8-hour sessions give people a 5-step action plan that includes the skills, resources, and knowledge to recognize if someone needs help and how to get it for them. For support outside of the US, a worldwide directory of resources and global hotlines is provided by the global Association for Suicide Prevention.

This week's CDC report recommends that states take on a comprehensive public health approach to prevent suicide and address the range of contributing factors. In the most recent period studied (2014 to 2016), the rate was highest in Montana, at 29.2 per 100,000 residents, compared with the national average of 13.4 per 100,000. Everyone can help by learning the warning signs for suicide and how to respond.

Despite the steadiness of the suicide rate in the state, Allen says there is a lot of work to do.

If you or someone you know may be contemplating suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

"Middle-aged adults had the largest number of suicides and a particularly high increase in suicide rates".

They might talk about wanting to die or make plans for taking their life.

Prof Cerel also emphasised that encouraging people to go to therapy and using mental health professionals to help "change dysfunctional thinking", is the ultimate goal.

"Suicide in this country really is a problem that is impacted by so many factors". "There is a constant reinforcement of this in their world every single day, making them very vulnerable to keeping their internal pain, thoughts, and struggles to themselves".

More than 90 percent of people who have attempted suicide survive, according to the director of Colorado's Office of Suicide Prevention. "You never get used to it", Williams said.

"A big problem that has not yet been addressed in practice is that we continue to rely nearly entirely on people themselves to proactively tell us if they are suicidal", said Matthew Nock, a professor of psychology at Harvard University.
