Percentage increases over this time ranged from just under 6 percent in DE to over 57 percent in North Dakota.

Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death and is one of just three leading causes that are increasing, along with unintentional injuries and Alzheimer's disease.

Because it relies on Congress for funding, the CDC may have good reason not to emphasize the unique role of firearms in US suicide rates.

CDC researchers can't point to any one cause for this continued increase in suicide rates on a national level. "People are often anxious that if you ask someone [about suicide] you increase their likelihood of dying by suicide".

"Cheer up, people care about you" or "do something nice for yourself" or "go for a run, you'll feel better" doesn't help, because depression tells you that people don't really care about you, that you don't deserve anything nice, and that nothing will make you feel better.
