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.
