Treatment for Suicidal Ideation in San Diego

Suicide is the act of taking your own life – a tragic reaction to seemingly unbearable pain or stress in your life. Understand that there is hope. You can overcome this by receiving effective psychiatric counseling and start enjoying your life again.

Common Causes of Suicidal Ideation

  • Mental health conditions. In most cases, suicidal thoughts are linked to an underlying mental health issue that can be treated, once it’s discovered and properly diagnosed.
  • Physical health conditions. In some cases, suicidal thinking may be linked to an underlying physical health problem, which must be discovered (or dismissed, in favor of another cause).
  • Medications. In some people, certain prescription or over-the-counter drugs can cause suicidal feelings, which also must be evaluated and determined to be a cause, or dismissed in favor of another cause.

Suicidal Ideation Treatment

No two clients are alike in their own unique thoughts, feelings, history or current situation. Because your suicidal thoughts and behavior are specific to your situation, our medical and clinical team will develop a treatment course that is tailored to your individual needs.

Diagnostics / Evaluation / Assessments

Our psychiatrist and his team will conduct a thorough mental assessment and evaluation to obtain a clear understanding of you and your situation, both current and historic. They will then be able to provide a proper diagnosis, which they will use as the foundational determiner of the treatment plan.

Medication Management

It is our hope and intention to cease as many medications as possible that are prescribed to you. Our Psychiatric team will survey the medications prescribed to you to determine effectiveness, appropriateness, contraindications and correct dosage. We clearly understand that most clients desire to cease taking medications for many reasons. We are sensitive to this desire. But, we also know from considerable experience treating clients that antidepressants, antipsychotic medications, anti-anxiety medications and other medications can be highly effective when prescribed appropriately, to help reduce the seemingly unbearable symptoms you are experiencing, which can help you feel appreciably less suicidal.

Ideally, once you’re stabilized pharmacologically, you will be able to reduce the medications prescribed to you, over time. This is our hope.


Psychotherapy, also called psychological counseling or ‘talk therapy’, is a vital treatment to enable you to reduce your suicidal thoughts and ideas. With your primary therapist, you will explore and discuss the issues that make you feel suicidal, and you will learn skills to help you manage your feelings and emotions more effectively.

The clinical team at our mental health treatment disorder will develop a comprehensive treatment plan for you that will make primary therapy as the focus, combined with small group therapy, and proven adjunctive therapies and activities.

Family Support and Education

Having treated hundreds of clients, experience has taught us that your loved ones can be a source of vital support to you, and a source of conflict in many instances. But, either way, when we involve them in your suicidal ideation treatment, only with your complete consent and agreement, we can help them understand what you are experiencing and enlist their help.  If you are wanting and willing to do so.

Get the help you need, today. You should have tremendous hope about a happy, stable life – not despair. We can help you. We are ready to get you to a much better place, where you can begin your new life’s journey.

Don’t suffer any longer.

What Our Clients Say

M.P. – Father

Your program provided our daughter with the most masterful therapist we have ever encountered (and we have used many).  She has had an unbelievable ability to see the long-term trajectory of our daughter’s treatment and to approach her treatment in stages that fit where my daughter’s development was.  We can’t say enough positive about her.


I have never felt better than I do now, since completing your program. The truly caring and supportive staff and the intensive program changed my life. What a neat place to stay for treatment - I love Pacific Beach! I have learned skills and behavior to move forward with my life thanks to you.


The therapists and counselors and really whole team were extremely beneficial to me and my understanding of my issues. The treatment plan they developed was exactly what I needed

Watson Family

Solara’s program was such a positive experience for our mom (and for us)! She had become almost impossible to deal with. Your entire staff was phenomenally supportive and kind and patient with her. We feel like we’ve got our mom back, now.


We are so grateful to you for the treatment and care you provided our daughter. She is doing unbelievably well now thanks to your program. We will gladly tell anyone we encounter that needs treatment about the wonderful work you do at Solara.


The Solara program is truly amazing. I’ve never had more clarity or more good energy in my entire life. The attention the physicians and the therapists gave me was outstanding. I feel like they truly understood and addressed my issues, which had consumed my life for years. Thank you all.

Michelle Family

I want to thank you and the entire staff and support system at Solara for taking such good care of my sister. On behalf of my entire family, we want you all to understand that your patience and kindness stretches further than you can see… Thank you, again and again, from the bottom of my heart.


The Solara Treatment Program was a life-changing experience for me. To be able to heal in such a beautiful, peaceful environment, with such a terrific treatment team, was so amazingly positive. I have found my true self, again. I thank you and my family thanks you for helping me become the person I was meant to be.

R.M. – Father

If not for Solara Mental Health, I am almost positive that our daughter would not be as advanced in her treatment, and would not have the almost miraculous confident and positive outlook that she has.


The program has given me the tools I needed to really gain stability. For the first time in years - maybe for as long as I can remember, actually, I’m learning how to cope and manage my stressors and triggers. I now believe that I can find some relief and happiness.


Even though I’m not religious, I realized when I got sober that for the first time in my life I wanted to explore my spiritual side. I benefited hugely from the individual spiritual sessions that I had with Chris. I’m really grateful for that aspect of the whole treatment experience.


Solara was truly a life-changing experience for me and for our children, because of what you did for my wife! The treatment team was phenomenally supportive and perfect for helping her with her anxiety and depression. We are all now moving forward to put our lives back together and it started with you all in Pacific Beach. Thank you for what you do.
