Suicide rates are up by 30 percent across the nation since 1999, federal health officials reported Thursday (7 June). While many cases of mental illness may have been diagnosed, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also noted that relationship stress, financial troubles, and substance abuse were contributing to the trends.

'From 1999 to 2015, suicide rates increased among both sexes, all racial/ethnic groups, and all urbanization levels,' the CDC researchers wrote in their report. ...
Suicide rates have increased in every state since 1999 with the exception of Nevada -- but Nevada has already long had one of the highest suicide rates in the country.
