The highest rise was seen in western states, with an over 57 percent increase recorded in North Dakota. "It's imperative that we continue to make suicide prevention a top priority, by promoting public awareness of the issue, evaluating risk factors and encouraging appropriate treatments and interventions".
And the increase in suicides in MA has been blamed on the travails of middle-aged men, who account for the largest number of suicide deaths.
"Suicide is such a complex issue that it is really hard to point out any one reason why it's increasing in any one population", Brown said.
Suicide rates in Vermont and New Hampshire are double that of MA.
While the study emphasizes the need for more prevention resources, predicting suicides can be hard.
On an individual level, it's also crucial to look out for the people in your life, Schuchat says. The CDC has calculated that suicides from opioid overdoses almost doubled between 1999 and 2014, and data from a 2014 national survey showed that individuals addicted to prescription opioids had a 40 percent to 60 percent higher risk of suicidal ideation.
High suicide numbers in the United States are not a new phenomenon. Those with known mental health conditions were mostly men, but they were less likely to use firearms.
"In addition to making sure Missouri's farmers and ranchers have a strong safety net and access to trade, we need to ensure they have access to the mental health resources that are often lacking in rural areas", McCaskill said in a statement.
Researchers looked at a 16-month time period between January 2015 and April 2016 when there were 61 deaths in New Orleans that were classified as suicides.
If you are having thoughts of harming yourself or thinking about suicide, talk to someone who can help, such as a trusted loved one, your doctor, your licensed mental health professional if you already have one, or go to the nearest hospital emergency department.
"We know that prevention programs work and can be effective in reducing this tragedy", Shuchat said. But local mental health advocates said they are also seeing younger people struggling with suicidal impulses. "Men and Hispanics especially are less likely to seek help". But Dr. Schuchat said the decrease was minor for a state with a high suicide rate.
Shuchat says, "We do see increases in suicides associated with economic downturns and it can take a long time for the recovery to kick in". Because anybody can experience those stresses. Rates ranged from 6.9 per 100,000 in the District of Columbia to 29.2 per 100,000 in Montana. Information about contributing circumstances for those who died by suicide was obtained via the National Violent Death Reporting System, which is relatively new and in place in only 27 states. Experts in the field have speculated the reported rate of 1 in every 400 physicians committing suicide is an underestimate, pointing to differing death classifications in known cases. "We are concerned with all aspects of suicide prevention, including access to lethal means, and so we do include that in a comprehensive approach to suicide prevention".
