Ideation is a process of generating and conveying ideas. I have chosen the term suicidal ideation because it is very frequently used to describe a passive or active tendency of a person to commit suicide. Suicidal thoughts might range from a deeply hidden lingering intention to end one’s life to a solid active plan. Most people who have suicidal ideation or tendencies will be only playing with this idea and not trying to follow through with it; some will make ineffective attempts; others will make false attempts – at parasuicide - to draw attention to themselves deliberately with no real intention of dying. In any case, suicidal ideation is a symptom of a serious psychiatric disorder that sometimes requires immediate medical attention.
