It shows the growing severity of the issue

The most extreme increase from 1999 to 2016 was in North Dakota, with a 57.6 percent rise.

"Suicide does tend to rise during the holidays or at least that's what some early reports said".

Despite this, she said there are studies that show a rise in teen suicide during the time the series began streaming.

Vermont is home to a high proportion of white people, and whites as a group have higher suicide rates than ethnic groups.

Yet research has shown that almost 80 per cent of people who die by suicide explicitly deny suicidal thoughts or intentions in their last communications, he added.

While the study emphasizes the need for more prevention resources, predicting suicides can be hard.

The dramatic rise in opioid addiction also can't be overlooked, experts say, though untangling accidental from intentional deaths by overdose can be hard. In that time stretch, guns were used in 53 percent of suicides.

High suicide numbers in the United States are not a new phenomenon.

They found that relationship problems or loss (45.1% versus 39.6%), life stressors (50.5% versus 47.2%), and recent or impeding crises (32.9% versus 26%) were significantly more common among those without known mental health conditions than those with.

However, he said, better records are being kept on suicide statistics. "What are we doing as a nation to help people to manage these things? And so a report like this really draws attention to the fact that we need to do a whole lot more to prevent suicide, to save lives".
