Suicide rates rising in USAmerica's suicide rate won't stop rising.

Numbers released Thursday from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show 48,344 people died by suicide in 2018, up from 47,173 the year before. While the increase was small, just two-tenths of a percent, the rise in deaths over time has been steady. Since 1999, the suicide rate has climbed 35%.

Death rates in 2018 increased for only two of the 10 leading causes of death: suicide and influenza/pneumonia.

"I was 100% unsurprised," said April Foreman, a clinician and board member at the American Association of Suicidology, noting systems of science and care have remained static. "That's not acceptable. We need to start treating these deaths seriously and respecting these survivors by upping our game in public health."
