coherentnews

According to a report on June 4, 2018 by US Center for Disease Control and Prevention the states in US have seen a significant rise in suicide rates.

Mental disorders such as depression and bipolar disorders are seen as the major causes of suicide. Poverty in under developed countries is an economical factor but a recent report reveals that suicide rates have gone high in flourished US states. It is tenth leading cause of death in USA.

The data provided by National Vital Statistics System from 50 states showed that half of the suicide victims had no mental disorders. The major reasons behind suicide were job problems, loss of home and legal troubles. A single factor was hardly seen as a step toward ending one’s life. It was observed that along with mental illness, several factors like economical failures, childhood trauma or abuse and relationship problems were also responsible.

Around 45,000 Americans died by suicide in 2016. Use of firearms was the most common method used along with hanging and poisoning. Tennessee, Missouri and Kansas are the 3 states with highest suicide rates. The state of Nevada has however, seen a slight decrease in the rate over a past few years.

Suicide is not illegal in US but an attempt leads to penalties. In cases of a terminal disease, Physician assisted suicide is legal. However, Canadians who have attempted suicide are barred from entering in USA.

The report stated that suicide is a public health problem and it is important to study the various factors responsible for suicide risk to prevent it. The task could be achieved by teaching kids problem solving and coping skills at an early age. Economical support and access to more affordable and effective treatment modalities is also necessary.
