11 States with the Lowest Suicide Rates in America

9. Nebraska

Suicide rate per 100,000: 11.64

Nebraska has always realized the importance of encouraging people to talk about their problems instead of deciding to commit suicide. It has a Youth Suicide Prevention Center whose primary task is to further decrease the rate of suicides taking place within the state. Nebraska also has the lowest unemployment rate in the entire nation at 2.5%, so unemployment pressure is not common in the nation, which in turn has led to a relatively decreased suicide rate.
