"These findings are disturbing", said Schuchat.

The report will then go to the governor and the General Assembly.

As shown in the map below from the CDC, Nevada is the only state that did not experience an increase in the rate of suicide-though it's still high at an average of 22 per 1,000 during years in the study period. After those states passed "red-flag" gun laws, which enable police to seize firearms from people who are a risk to themselves or others, firearm suicide rates fell significantly, a recent study found.

Minnesota was one of the states with the biggest suicide-rate increases.

North Dakota had the highest rate increase at 57.6 percent, but the report found that the rate increased more than 30 percent in 25 states, including South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, and Kansas.

The increases range from six percent in DE to 58 percent in North Dakota. New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Maryland and CT have the country's lowest suicide rates.

Almost 45,000 Americans took their own lives in 2016 and according to the CDC two-thirds of gun-related deaths in the U.S. are suicides, the BBC reports. The other two top 10 causes of death that are on the rise are Alzheimer's disease and drug overdoses, she noted.

Suicide is "a tragedy for families and communities across the country", Dr. Anne Schuchat, the principal deputy director of the CDC, said in a statement.

Advocates fighting to decrease those numbers say it's crucial we understand suicide is more than a mental health issue - it's a public health issue.

In Baltimore, about 53 people die from suicide annually, and 82 percent of those deaths occur among men, according to 2014 data from the Baltimore City Health Department.

The CDC said the analysis was meant to help identify ways to reduce the annual suicide rate by 20% by 2025, a goal established by the National Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. "Focusing suicide prevention efforts exclusively in health care settings is insufficient". The CDC report details what the federal, state and local communities, and health care systems, employers and everyone else can do. Last year, the CDC released a package on suicide prevention that includes strategies based on the best available evidence.

"People aren't often really going to ask for help". "There's just a lot of stigma around suicide and so we don't talk about it", Williams said. "So, when you put those things together, it can be hard to find help even when you want it", Trisha Kajimura, Mental Health America of Hawai'i Executive Director, said.
