The average person has about 60,000 thoughts each day. Of those thoughts, 95% of them are repeated daily and 80% are negative. It’s far from uncommon to experience negative thoughts. When thoughts turn to self-harm or suicide, it’s called suicidal ideation, we help people with these feelings in our suicide treatment program.
Passive suicidal ideation means you wish you were dead or could die, but you have no plans to commit suicide.
Active suicidal ideation means you are not just thinking suicide, you have a specific plan for following through on those thoughts.
Suicidal ideation is a symptom of major depression and the sort of depression found in those who live with bipolar disorder. But people living with other mental disorders, or with no disorder at all, also may experience suicidal thoughts.
At Integrative Life Center, we offer the support and care you need to overcome suicidal ideation in our suicide treatment program.

Suicidal thoughts threaten an individuals well-being and life. There is no quick fix or easy solution. It is critical to understand that increases in negative thoughts can lead to suicidal ideation.
- Cutting, burning, or other behaviors of self-harm
- Uncharacteristic anxiety or long-lasting sadness
- Obsession with death or what would happen if they died
Clients of Integrative Life Center’s Suicide Treatment program learn how to cope with and dispel the thoughts of harm that plague their minds.

All of these conditions are treatable. For individuals who actively engage in suicidal thoughts, it is imperative that they receive support, care, and treatment as soon as possible.

Sessions are customized toward the needs of each individual client and may include therapy types like cognitive or dialectical behavioral therapies. These types of talk therapy focus on challenging negative thoughts and learning how to regulate emotions.
