Call to Mind Forum

Call to Mind is an MPR content initiative around issues of mental health.

New CDC statistics show death by suicide has increased 25% since 1999 nationwide.

In Minnesota, the healthiest state in the nation, the report shows a 40% increase in suicide, marking the 8th largest increase. While Minnesota is 38th in overall ranking, the steep increase has public health officials and advocates concerned.

What’s driving the increase, and how can we respond? Why is death by suicide increasing among rural Minnesotans, and why do men experience 4 times the rate of women? How is this affecting communities of color?

Bring your questions and join MPR News Morning Edition Host Cathy Wurzer with an expert panel to learn more about the public health problem of suicide and what we all can do to respond.
