The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released figures Thursday on suicide rates across the U.S. According to the report, the suicide rate in Minnesota jumped 40.6 percent over 18 years. "Something's going on that's different than it used to be, more people are taking their own lives".

On the heels of the deaths of two trailblazers - fashion designer, Kate Spade, and chef and TV host, Anthony Bourdain, as well the launching of a pilot program in the state, and new research from the CDC - the topic of suicide is in the forefront.

Middle-age adults had the highest increase in suicides.

The report called for every society sector - government, public health, healthcare, employers, education, media and community organizations - to cooperate in addressing the factors related to suicide.

"Due to higher poverty rates, higher likelihood of hourly pay and productivity-based labor, and lack of transportation infrastructure, mental health services are often not accessible even if they are available in a rural community - that is, even though it is there, many people either can not get to it or can not afford (either directly or indirectly) to go", he said. "But these issues were [found] in all, with or without a mental health condition".

Yet research has shown that almost 80 percent of people who die by suicide explicitly deny suicidal thoughts or intentions in their last communications, he added. The most recent rates, for the years 2014 to 2016, ranged from a low of 6.9 per 100,000 residents per year in Washington, D.C., to a high of 29.2 per 100,000 residents in Montana.

"The crisis center has always been a very busy unit for Journey Mental Health", said Peter Zallar, Journey Mental Health. "Being there for your friends and colleagues and family when they're going through a hard time can be quite important", Schuchat says.

Calls for better suicide-prevention efforts are mounting, after a federal study identified a sharp rise in suicide rates in the United States over the past two decades.

Roughly 80 percent of Oregonians who die by suicide are male, and rates are highest among men age 75 and older. The rates have gone up more than 30% in half of all states since 1999, she says.

Previous CDC reports have found rate increases of 80 percent among white, middle-age women since 1999, and of 89 percent among Native Americans.

Oregon's rate climbed to 17.8 suicide deaths per 100,000.

"The data supports what we know about that notion", Gordon said. Keep firearms and drugs out of the hands of those at risk are common sense, unless you don't know half of suicides were at risk.
