half of all states experiencing a 30 percent rise in suicides

Like you, we woke up to the news that celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain had taken his own life. Days earlier, we’d awoken to similar headlines about fashion designer Kate Spade.

Someone not surprised by the news? The Centers for Disease Control. On Thursday, the CDC released a study that found suicide rates have increased in nearly every state since 1999, with half of all states experiencing a 30 percent rise in suicides.

More troubling, only about half of the people who died by suicide had a known mental health condition.
