According to the CDC 9.3 million adults in the United States have reported having suicidal thoughts in a year. But what are suicidal ideations? It means thinking about and planning a suicide attempt. Having suicidal thoughts does not mean a person will carry out the act. The CDC also states: males are 4 times more likely to end their life. While women more often have suicidal ideations.

Disclaimer: None of these points mentioned are direct causes, but rather there could be an indirect relationship between them. Just like most psychology research, findings are correlational at best. If you or someone you know are having suicidal thoughts, it’s best to consult professional help.
