Firearms were the most common and most consistently successful method of suicide, so Kurtenbach says in moments of crisis it is best to have firearms secured at home.

In the United States, the statistics related to suicide are just shocking.

Midlife presents numerous challenges because it is a time of many transitions.

Gould, who has studied "suicide contagion" for years, said research has shown that the phenomenon is real and suggests that media coverage of celebrity deaths, in particular, can influence those who are vulnerable or at risk and can lead to a spike in suicide rates. But it must be discussed with a manager whether to report any contents, to make sure they don't idealize suicide or indirectly encourage others.

Celebrity suicide is particularly complicated. People from across the world have been sending their condolences to those affected and other people have been sharing their personal stories of how suicide has affected their lives.

The outbreak prompted the novel to be banned in several European locations.

Centuries later, Netflix's controversial drama "13 Reasons Why" has sparked similar results. For each suicide death, there are 25 to 30 attempts. Ohio, for example, witnessed a 36 percent increase in the number of suicides over the study period.

The CDC says there was nearly a 10% increase of suicides in the four months following Robin Williams death by suicide.

The former "Red Hot Chili Peppers" guitarist, 51, shared a message on Instagram directing fans to the National Suicide Prevention Hotline.

According to a recent CDC report called "Vital Signs", the suicide rate in the USA has spiked to 25 percent since 1999, with 45,000 deaths in 2016 alone.

"These findings are disturbing". Connected to factors like substance use, joblessness and loneliness but harder to grasp than the lack of adequate health care, the loss of the middle class, and regional pockets of grim economic hardship, despair is hardly tangible.

Visit the National Institute of Mental Health for risk factors, signs and symptoms, treatment and therapies, and more information on suicide and suicide prevention. More than half of people who died by suicide did not have a known mental health condition. TSPN recommends that all familiarize themselves with the warning signs of suicide (listed at http://tspn.org/warning-signs) so they can get help for themselves and those around them as needed.

Stone and Schuchat are calling for a comprehensive approach to suicide prevention following the conclusion of their study.

"People are afraid to say they need help". "It's important to take care of yourself when you are supporting someone through a hard time, as this may stir up hard emotions. If it does, please reach out and support yourself".
