Encyclopedia > Suicidal ideation

Suicidal ideation is common medical term for the mere thoughts about and of plans of committing suicide, not the actual following through or act itself. Most people with suicidal ideation do not commit suicide. The range of suicidal ideation varies greatly from fleeting to detailed planning, role playing and half-hearted attempts. Suicide (from Latin sui caedere, to kill oneself) is the act of willfully ending ones own life. ... In role-playing, participants adopt characters, or parts, that have personalities, motivations, and backgrounds different from their own. ...
