YOUR SAFETY + A DISCLAIMER
Harming yourself or others
Grief can be extremely painful and cause tremendous suffering. It impacts physical, mental and emotional states. It is not uncommon for grievers to have suicidal thoughts, have a desire to “not exist” or want to “join my loved one”.
Suicidal ideation means thinking about suicide or wanting to take your own life. However, there are two kinds of suicidal ideation: passive and active. Passive suicidal ideation occurs when you wish you were dead or that you could die, but you don't actually have any plans to commit suicide. Active suicidal ideation, on the other hand, is not only thinking about it but having the intent to commit suicide, including planning how to do it.
If your pain is too much to bear, please reach out for help. There are people who have been where you are and are ready to help. Remember, no feeling is final and there are less permanent solutions than killing oneself.
If you or someone you know is in crisis, call the U.S. National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, a free, 24-hour hotline, at 1-800-273-8255. If your issue is an emergency, call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room. Outside of the U.S., please call your nearest hospital for local resources.
