SEATTLE (AP) - Suicide rates inched up in nearly every U.S. state from 1999 through 2016, according to a new government report released Thursday.
More than half of suicides in 2015 in a subgroup of 27 states were among people with no known mental health condition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found. Suicide is rarely caused by any single factor, health officials said, but information from coroners' reports suggest many of the deaths followed relationship problems, substance use and financial crises.
