Treatment is specific to each client and will depend on how severe the circumstance is, particular risk factors, and how long the person has been experiencing suicidal thoughts.
The burden of suicidal thoughts
Suicidal thoughts and sentiments can include ideas about ending one’s life or having the notion that other people would be better off without them. Suicide risk is elevated by mental health problems such as depression, psychosis, substance abuse, and challenging living conditions. The presence of risk factors does not guarantee that a person will consider or attempt suicide.
Some people feel helpless and believe that nothing will ever get better and think that suicide is the only way to end their suffering. A person’s decision to commit suicide often results from various events and factors. There is no one explanation for suicide since it is multifaceted.

How suicidal counseling can help?
All too often, people who are suicidal believe that nothing can be done to help them if they are dealing with persistent thoughts about ending their life. But, suicidal counseling can help the client in navigating complex life issues.
Online and phone counseling can be a lifesaving tool for those who find it hard to open up or feel uncomfortable talking face-to-face with a stranger. A professional and experienced counselor uses talking therapies to explore and discuss thoughts, feelings, and actions. Clients can better understand the causes of their suicidal thoughts by engaging in various therapeutic interventions.
Group therapy is also effective where individuals with similar experiences can share ideas and coping mechanisms and support each other. Trained psychiatrists may prescribe medication to help manage symptoms or treat a mental health issue that may be the root of suicidal thoughts. Counseling helps create awareness that painful feelings are not permanent and that people have the power to change their actions and responses to adversity.

Suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the United States, and for every person who dies by suicide, six other people who are family or friends are affected.
