Content/Trigger Warning: Suicidal Ideation
September is Suicide Awareness Month, so my best friend, Cirien, helped me create a mock risk assessment. Many people wonder what it looks like if you tell your therapist you are having suicidal thoughts that you don’t want to act on, so I created this video to show how I respond when a client shares this with me.
Disclaimer: This only represents how I would handle the situation as a professional. I recommend asking your therapist what their policy is for responding to passive suicidal thoughts.
What other videos would be helpful to see? Let me know!
