    To be fair, suicide rates are also up because states have had to slash funding for mental health programs. Not that gas prices and a bad economy don't play a part. Stress absolutly contributes to suicide rates. But another factor is the increasing segment of our society who are parents to a troubled child, but refuse to take responsibility for it. When the gov't can't fill the gap, and parents don't wanna take on the task, the child becomes a man with mental issues and no one helping him. It's the parents job #1, gov'ts #2.

    Oh gosh, almost all of them. My home state currently, SC, has slashed MH funding massively. Most states have. I'll google it for a link, but it's fairly accepted as a budget fact.

    My X bro-in law killed himself under GW Moron.
    He was a true murkin.
    Re-financed his house for twice it's real value, got him summa them thar granite counter tops, 2 new SUV's, a big screen, marble floor in the living room, new garage and then got the news his employer was closing up and leaving murkastan..
    He hung himself ( and probably put the rope on his Visa card).
    He was warned. I was packing my bags about the same time it happened.

    Found this -

    States cutting the most of mental health budgets: Kentucky (47.5%), Alaska (35.0%), South Carolina (22.7%) and Arizona (22.7%).

    But 18 states increased mental health spending, the report notes. Adding the most was Oregon, with a 23.2% increase ($71 million from 2009-2011). Others ranged from 20.9% in North Carolina and 11.2% in Idaho to 0.2% in Florida.
