Suicidal Ideation Treatment

Refresh Your Life

What is Suicidal Ideation?

Roughly 10% of the global population will experience suicidal ideation at some point in their life, according to a study published in the British Journal of Psychiatry.

Suicidal ideation consists of thoughts of self-harm and/or the desire to end one’s own life. There are two types of suicidal ideation (though both are equally serious in nature and require treatment): passive and active. Passive suicidal ideation implies that one is merely thinking about the action, and active suicidal ideation is when a person intends to act on their thoughts.

Genetic Risks

Genetic Risks

Suicidal ideation, unfortunately, can run in families like other mental health conditions. If there is a loved one in your family who suffers from depression or suicidal ideation, then you are at a higher risk of developing either condition. That being said, despite the genetic component, not everyone with a family history of depression develops this condition.

Physical Risks

Physical Risks

Studies suggest that neurotransmitters, like serotonin and dopamine, are linked to the development of suicidal ideation. Additionally, many mental health disorders that can lead to suicidal thoughts or actions may also correspond to certain changes within the structure of the brain.

Other Risks

Other Risks

There are many factors outside of genetic or physical that may lead to suicidal ideation. For example, those who have made a suicidal attempt in the past are more likely to suffer from suicidal ideation again in the future. There are also chronic conditions, such as cancer or a substance abuse problem, that may also lead to suicidal ideation.

We Make a Difference

IV Ketamine Can Help

Suicidal ideation is not a condition that is meant to be dealt with alone. At Mind Balance Infusions, we believe our IV ketamine infusions may be able to bring you the relief you’ve been searching for.

Ketamine is an innovative, powerful new treatment option for conditions like suicidal ideation and depression (which often go hand-in-hand). Once known only for its use as an FDA-approved anesthetic, ketamine’s effect on the NMDA receptor and neurons in the brain make it the game-changing tool that healthcare professionals have been searching for.
