A common challenge with depression is the suicidal ideation that comes from an overwhelming sensation of hopelessness. In the most severe situations, suicide attempts do indeed take place. However, only a fraction of first attempts are successful and often help is sought to prevent further attempts.
Are Suicidal Thoughts a Symptom of Depression?
Suicidal thoughts are in themselves a symptom of depression. However, recent studies have found that depression is often comorbid with other disorders, or may be a symptom of a medication. Therefore, it is important to speak to a psychiatrist if you take medication or have been diagnosed with another condition.
