Biological Treatment for Suicidal Ideation
What is suicidal ideation?
Suicidal ideation refers to contemplations, thoughts, wishes, or ideas about death and suicide, usually brought on by emotional trauma and mental health challenges. They can affect anyone regardless of age, occupation, sex, gender, or race. Suicidal ideation are not always linked with suicide attempts, but they are one of several possible warning signs to indicate increased risk.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that in 2021, 12.3 million people seriously thought about suicide. Suicide rates among certain demographics can vary. However, suicidal ideations are more prevalent in non-Hispanic American Indian/Alaska Native people, followed by non-Hispanic White people, and young people identifying as LGBTQ+ have higher suicidal thoughts and behavior compared to their peers who identify as heterosexual. Recently, people employed in trade professions like construction workers and professions like dentists and lawyers have seen higher suicide rates.
Combining biological treatments with talk therapy support can bring patients the best outcomes possible.
Addressing untreated trauma symptoms and learning new skills may help decrease the frequency and intensity of suicidal ideations and may eliminate them altogether in some cases.
