Suicide rates are higher in rural areas, with the gap between rates in urban and rural areas widening, with 2007 seeing the gap begin to widen more quickly, the CDC reports.

In the United State suicides the number of suicides has risen by 25% in the last few years, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

The recently released CDC findings reveal that suicide rates increased by over 30 percent in more than half of the states.

"For many of us who have been close to someone or lost someone we know that suicide happens and that we know it's a real risk out there". The percentage increases range from just under 6 percent in DE and over 57 percent in North Dakota.

In exactly half of US states, the suicide rate increased more than 30 percent. And CDC also discourages media from reporting on suicides, which risks lowering awareness and stigmatizing mental health.

Contributing factors included "relationship problems or loss, substance misuse; physical health problems; and job, money, legal or housing stress", said the report.

Warriors' Kevin Durant held back from heckling Cavaliers fan
It was his teammates' reaction that people really fell in love with, or more accurately Durant's reaction to their reaction. According to Sportsradar's shot-making model, Durant has scored 21 more points than expected across the entire series.

"Unfortunately, our data show that the problem is getting worse", CDC Principal Deputy Director Dr. Anne Schuchat said in a press briefing. That age group also had the highest rate.

"It's important that we think about this in more broad terms than just as a mental health condition", Schuchat says. Bourdain's death was also confirmed to be a suicide after his friend and fellow celebrity chef Eric Ripert found him unresponsive in his hotel room in France.

The CDC said many people associate mental-health conditions with suicide, but it's rare for a single factor to lead someone to take their own life. Among people aged 15 to 34, suicide is the second leading cause of death.

"We need to have people understand that just because there was a high profile death by suicide it doesn't mean it has to be your outcome, too", he said.

If you or someone you know is considering suicide, self-harm, or is anxious, depressed, upset or needs to talk, call the 27/7 National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255 or text the crisis text line at 741-741. Asking if they've had suicidal thoughts is not harmful and lets them know you care, she said.

Every month, the crisis center at Journey Mental Health receives 3,000 phone calls.
