Suicidal Ideation (SI) is a life threatening disorder characterized by recurrent thoughts of death or ending one’s life, including the actual planning and implementation of suicide.

In November 2018, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention released challenging and heavy news: The average life expectancy has declined for the third consecutive year in the United States in part due to a rise in suicide. In 2017, 783 Minnesotans died by suicide. At 13.8 per 100,000 residents, Minnesota’s suicide rate is nearly on par with the national rate of 14 deaths per 100,000 residents.


Acts of suicide are both tragic and traumatic, ripping through many layers of society. From the family and friends who are affected to the lost potential of contributing to society as a meaningful and significant human being, suicide has a devastating impact.

At TRU Health and Wellness we are strong advocates for ending the affliction of suicidal ideation, and thankfully, medical research is paving the way toward that goal. Like- minded colleagues from around the country have conducted research that illustrates and validates the benefits of Ketamine infusions on patients with suicidal ideation. The results are outstanding, and our treatment protocols will benefit people afflicted with this disorder. Together, we can decrease the increasing rates of suicide here in Minnesota.

You are not alone, and there are many resources available to assist you or someone you care about. If you or someone you know, is actively suicidal please get help immediately by dialing 911.
