Suicidal Ideation clinical trials at University of California Health
6 in progress, 3 open to eligible people
Accelerated Theta Burst Stimulation for Suicidal Ideation
open to eligible people ages 18-70
This is a prospective clinical trial to confirm the effectiveness of bilateral accelerated theta burst stimulation (aTBS) on suicidal ideation (SI), while exploring cortical inhibition measures in this treatment paradigm. In this proposed study, the investigators will evaluate the anti-suicidal effects of bilateral aTBS over the DLPFC compared to accelerated intermittent theta burst stimulation (aiTBS) over the left DLPFC in participants with TRD and SI. Additionally, the investigators aim to identify neurophysiological targets through which bilateral aTBS induces remission of SI in TRD differentially from aiTBS.
Low-Dose Intravenous Ketamine for Adolescents With Depression and Suicidal Ideation in the Emergency Department
open to eligible people ages 12-18
The goal of this study is to test whether a single low-dose of IV ketamine given in the emergency department to adolescents with treatment-resistant depression and suicidal ideation can reduce depression symptoms and suicidal thoughts compared to placebo. Participants will complete depression scales at baseline, and 1 hour, 3 hours, 1 day, 3 days, and 7 days after receiving the treatment.
SAFETY-A for Promoting Equity in Suicide Prevention Outcomes in Schools
open to eligible people ages 11 years and up
This study will adapt Safe Alternatives For Teens and Youth - Acute (SAFETY-A) for implementation in low-resourced school districts to reduce racial/ethnic disparities in mental health service use (MHS) following identification of suicide risk in youth. SAFETY-A will be adapted to fit the organizational context of school districts and to reduce mistrust of MHS, internalized stigma, and concealment of youth emotional distress that arise in school suicide risk assessments with Asian American and Latinx students. Following a prototyping case series, a feasibility trial will assign four districts to the timing of SAFETY-A implementation to generate preliminary data on feasibility and impacts on proposed mechanisms and youth MHS utilization and clinical outcomes across racial/ethnic groups.
A Novel Peer-Delivered Recovery-Focused Suicide Prevention Intervention for Veterans With Serious Mental Illness
Sorry, not yet accepting patients
Suicide is a major public health concern, particularly among Veterans with serious mental illness (SMI, i.e., psychotic disorders or bipolar disorders). Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) is a well-established evidence-based practice for those with SMI that centers on identifying warning signs of mental illness, developing wellness tools for functional independence, planning for day-to-day effective living within one's community, and building an action plan to create a valued life worth living. This proposed study will refine and pilot SUicide Prevention by Peers Offering Recovery Tactics (SUPPORT), a novel integrated recovery program that is an adaptation of peer-delivered WRAP for Veterans with SMI. In SUPPORT, a Peer Specialist leads a Veteran at increased risk for suicide through recovery planning that is tailored to the Veteran's suicidal experiences with cognitive learning strategies to enhance safety plan recall and improve functioning.
acTBS Treatment for Inpatient Subjects With Suicidality
Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
This is a pilot study to analyze the benefit of accelerated continuous Transcranial magnetic stimulation for inpatient subjects suffering with suicidal ideation. This study will enroll 40 inpatient subjects recruited from the Resnick Neuropsychiatric hospital. Subjects will be blinded and randomized to active or sham TMS treatment and will receive up to 5 assigned treatments per day. Subjects will also be asked to complete mood surveys throughout their participation. Participation in this study will last 7-10 days depending on scheduling.
Competitive Revision for CLARO: Collaboration Leading to Addiction Treatment and Recovery From Other Stresses
Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
The purpose of this study is to develop and then test an enhanced version of the parent study's collaborative care intervention for co-occurring disorders (CC-COD) to reduce the risk of suicide and overdose among individuals with opioid use disorder (OUD) in combination with PTSD/depression. The parent study is CLARO, Collaboration Leading to Addiction Treatment and Recovery from Other Stresses (NCT04559893).
