Celebrity suicides highlight troubling trend in midlife

"It's important that we think about this in more broad terms than just as a mental health condition", Schuchat says.

Reidenberg understands the complexities of suicides, pointing out there are nearly always multiple causes, including mental illnesses, substance abuse, a life change such as a job loss or a break up. The other two top 10 causes of death that are on the rise are Alzheimer's disease and drug overdoses, she noted. "They have a stereotype in their mind of the person who takes their life and why". The public doesn't need to know.

"There's that taboo of 'If I say it, is that bad? He wasn't open to sharing what was really going on inside".

Among those who committed suicide and who had known mental health conditions, 67.2% had a history of treatment for mental health or substance abuse conditions, and 54 percent were in treatment at the time of their suicide.

Jafary told us suicide is preventable, people just need to be willing to seek help, and if the individual doesn't want to, others need to step in. "He was very quiet, though".

"Even if they don't say yes, they've heard it from you, that there's someone that cares, that is concerned because then it could be that later when I'm thinking about this that maybe I'll call you", she said.

The findings were released days after the deaths of famed designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain brought the issue of suicide to the fore.

Fashion designer Kate Spade died of an apparent suicide on Tuesday at her NY apartment. In contrast, 12 out of 100,000 people died from suicide in 2012.

"We do have a high suicide rate", said Egan. The United States has a total 25 percent increase, CNN reports.

She also said the reason for the increase across the board was not due to one single factor, but rather a large collection of them.

The overall data came from coded death certificate records.

The CDC says there were a higher number of suicides in areas hard hit by the economic downturn, especially in rural areas in western states.

Extensively reported cases can make suicide seem to be more of "a viable option" if rich, famous people "who seem like they have it all" made that decision, said Theresa Buhse, associate executive director of the Long Island Crisis Center in Bellmore.
