Examples of Suicidal Thoughts
Having the idea that ending your life would be better than living is a sign of suicidal thoughts. You may or may not have a specific plan. Of the 29.5 million people living in Texas, 754,000 adults have reported suicidal thoughts in the past year.
There are two types of suicidal thoughts — active and passive.
Active suicidal thoughts: Not only are you having suicidal thoughts, but also you have a specific plan and an intention to carry out suicide.
Passive suicidal thoughts: You may have periodic thoughts of suicide, such as wishing you could fall asleep and never wake up, but you don’t have a genuine intention to harm yourself.
