National Suicide Rate Map

National suicide rates provide important information, but it is important to understand that suicide rates are not the same in each state. Some states have rates that are below the national average, and some states have rates above it.

The chart below shows a map of the United States with each state’s average suicide rate between the years 2000 and 2006 indicated by color. Lighter colors indicate states with lower rates of suicide.

Additional information about suicide can be found on NIMH’s suicide fact sheet and on NIMH’s suicide prevention page.
