Suicides rising throughout the US

The Hill -  Suicide rates are on the rise in almost every state, according to a new analysis released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  Suicide has become the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. and is one of three leading causes that are on the rise, the CDC said.
From 1999 to 2016, rates increased in nearly all states, ranging from a 6 percent increase in Delaware to a 57 percent increase in North Dakota. Twenty-five states had increases of more than 30 percent.

Not surprising. The situation for everyone but the rich is being made steadily worse, and the criminals-in-office have so little respect for us that they're not even bothering to pretend to fig-leaf their aggression.
