Suicidal Feelings

Sometimes we all feel everything has got on top of us but suicidal feelings are not part of this. They are terrifying feelings about not being able to go on, hating yourself, believing you are useless and not needed. The feelings of rage, shame and guilt will be unbearable.

Suicidal feelings may be for no apparent reason and can be extremely confusing. You may be harming yourself, taking extreme risks, overdosing on drugs, binging on alcohol or have developed anorexia or bulimia. You may be clear you want to die; simply not care if you live or die; or feel suicide will put you in control again. It is also common to have suicidal thoughts with certain mental health problems; depression, borderline personality disorder, psychosis, schizophrenia or bipolar.

But remember, there is no feeling so terrible that it cannot be changed, please seek treatment. In times of crisis please go straight to your local A&E.

Our treatment approach for suicidal feelings

Our approach to treating suicidal thoughts combines individualised programmes with treatments based on current clinical evidence. There are two types of treatment available for suicidal feelings: talking therapies and medication. Counselling will focus on immediate difficulties and help with problem-solving skills. Psychotherapy will support you to come to terms with difficult memories, feelings and fears and CBT will explore practical ways to deal with your suicidal thoughts and replacing them with more realistic and helpful ones. Medication can also be effective to help you cope with suicidal feelings.
