Steep Rise in Suicides Among Middle-Aged Americans, CDC Says
Date:5/3/2013

dle-aged men, while poisoning and guns were the most common among middle-aged women.

Suicide rates increased in all states and the increases were statistically significant in 39 states, according to the report.

Other findings:

  • The biggest increases in suicide rates were among people aged 50 to 54 years old (48 percent) and 55 to 59 years old (49 percent).
  • Suicide rates rose by 23 percent or more in all four major regions of the country.
  • Suicide rates increased 81 percent for hanging/suffocation, 24 percent for poisoning and 14 percent for guns.

One psychiatrist said people who are suicidal need to get proper help.

"People have to take it seriously when somebody says they are suicidal," said Dr. Alan Manevitz, a clinical psychiatrist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. "You can't assume that, because you don't think this is worth being suicidal about, that that person feels the same way. It's not how bad the problem is, but it's how badly the person is experiencing it. Usually, that's a cry for help."

To collect the data for the new report, the CDC relied on its web-based Injury Statistics Query and Reporting System.
