If you’re dealing with suicidal thoughts or behavior, seeking treatment is the best choice you can make for your life. The stakes are high, so the sooner you seek treatment, the better.

If you are actively considering ending your life, please know that there is a community waiting to help you. You can get free, immediate support and connection by calling 800-273-8255 or texting HOME to 741741.

If you can wait a week or two to see a trained professional, a licensed therapist can help you understand your suicidal thoughts (also known as suicidal ideation), and create a plan to help you find new connection, joy, and meaning in your life.

Wherever you are located in Connecticut from Bridgeport to West Haven or even New Britain, or anywhere else nearby, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Signs You Need Treatment for Suicidal Ideation

Here are some signs that you should consider seeking the expertise of a trained suicidal ideation treatment provider:

  • You don’t feel any sense of purpose or hope for the future.
  • You do things without thinking about your own safety.
  • You have attempted to end your life in the past.
  • You have separated yourself from friends and loved ones.
  • You think about and plan your own death.

(Please note this is not an exhaustive list.)

Often times, suicidal ideation is the result of underlying issues such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, PTSD, or treatable mental health disorders.

If any of these signs ring true for you, time is of the essence - reach out for help from a professional therapist. If you are looking for help taking the next step, read licensed therapist Janice Vitale’s tips for getting unstuck when you feel depressed.
