Suicidal ideation is a result of the client’s feeling totally overwhelmed because of his/her perception of a variety of precipitating events. Suicide does not generally come without warning. Most often, persons considering it show symptoms or provide clues to their intent. A person displaying only one or two of these behaviors may not be suicidal. Other factors must be taken into consideration and a suicidal assessment must be performed. Warning Signs of Suicide Giving things away Putting things in order Writing a will Withdrawing from usual activities Preoccupation with death Having experienced the recent death of a relative or friend Feeling hopeless, helpless, worthless Increasing drug/alcohol use Displaying psychotic behavior Showing agitated depression Suicide assessment is a judgment call. Being sensitive to risk factors and asking appropriate questions are vital strategies. Suicide Assessment Ask if the person has thoughts of killing himself/herself Ask family members if they are concerned that the person will commit suicide Check if person has plan for suicide Check persons mental status Check the history of suicide in the person’s life Find out about any existing support systems that the individual may have Ask the person for a commitment to talk with you and to give up all rights to suicide for a period of time (No Suicide Contract) Loss often triggers suicidal thinking in a grieving person, especially after the denial and anger pass and depression sets in.
