Suicide rates went up more than 30% in half of states since 1999. Why should you be concerned with the latest suicide data? Suicide rates increased in nearly every state from 1999 through 2016. We often see mental health conditions as the only cause of suicide, but suicide is rarely caused by any single factor. Factors can include relationship problems, substance misuse, a recent crisis, or job, financial or legal stress. More than half of people who died by suicide did not have a known mental health condition.
