Abstract

The Role of Decision-Making in Suicidal Ideation

Suicide ideation or suicide attempt has often been discussed as a result of personal circumstances and past experiences. In this article we have discussed how choosing to live or end one’s life is a choice one needs to make, in a situation where they may be stressed or highly emotional. The aim of this article is to bring a perspective of how important decision-making is in this situation. More importantly, during counselling or interventions one must be aware that the person who may have suicide ideations or recently attempted suicide may have impaired decision-making abilities and/or lower executive functions due to stress and excessive emotions. Therefore, we suggest that models of suicide ideation and ideations to actions must include these aspects of emotional regulation and individual differences in decision-making.
