Any mental health disorder can cause thoughts about suicide, also known as suicidal ideation. Sometimes people who don’t have a mental health diagnosis, but who suffer from chronic physical illness or pain, or who have experienced a drastic life change or loss, can have these thoughts too.

Sometimes people have passive thoughts about suicide, such as:

  • Thinking that it would be better to not exist.
  • Thinking that if something happened and they died it wouldn’t be such a bad thing.
  • Thoughts that people would be better off without them.

Sometimes people have active suicidal ideation, which means:

  • Thinking about actually killing themselves.
  • Thinking about how they might want to do it.
  • Making a plan for when and how to do it.
  • Making arrangements for pets or belongings.
  • Feeling unsafe, or having fears of going through with it.
  • Writing a suicide note.

Suicidal ideation should always be taken seriously, whether it is passive or active, but active suicidal ideation is an emergency. Please call 988 or go to the nearest emergency room.

If you are having passive suicidal thoughts, we can help.

Let them know that they can call 988, the National Suicide and Crisis Lifeline, for free, confidential support 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
