"It's a national problem of wide scope that we need comprehensive approaches for", said Anne Schuchat, a CDC deputy director.

The CDC also noted that suicide rates have increased 30 percent in more than half the states from 1999 to 2016.

Close to 45,000 people died by suicide in 2016, more than double the amount who died from homicide.

According to the findings published in the CDC's "Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report", 54% of those who died by suicide in 2015 did not have a known mental health condition.

Many people who died by suicide, according to the report, had recently experienced hard life events such as relationship problems, physical ailments, financial stress and job or home loss. So, we would have to watch, especially with people on the Big Island who have lost their homes.

"Suicide in this country really is a problem that is impacted by so many factors".

Reidenberg understands the complexities of suicides, pointing out there are nearly always multiple causes, including mental illnesses, substance abuse, a life change such as a job loss or a break up. "Those can all be risk factors", Kajimura said.

Formed in 2016, the group has made multiple efforts to slow suicide rates, but the work never ends. While the study did not look at the potential reasons why that might be, Schuchat offered a possible explanation.

"I have lived with anxiety and sporadic bouts of depression for most of my adult life", Munn wrote alongside a post listing worldwide suicide hotlines.

Dr Christine Moutier, a psychiatrist and chief medical officer for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, said it was important everyone knew the warning signs and to intervene when someone appeared troubled.

The report showed a fourfold difference in state suicide rates, ranging from 6.9 per 100,000 residents per year in Washington DC to 29.2 in Montana.

During the study period, suicide rates increased in almost all states, with increases ranging from about 6 percent in DE to 57 percent in North Dakota.

According to the Nevada DHHS statistics, 57 percent of suicides are carried out with a firearm. She has started a foundation in memory of her father called Jerry's Walk and she now serves as president of the board at the Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation.

There's also no single cause for suicide. The stigma attached to mental health services often prevents people from seeking help. It's important to do not forget to remove access to firearms, medications, or any other potential tools they might use to harm themselves.

For a suicide prevention number within the United States call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. All calls are confidential.
