Yes: However, this is a complicated question because many factors can contribute to suicidal ideation. Brain diseases like bipolar disorder and depression greatly increase the frequency of suicidal ideation and the % of completions. Personality issues may contribute, and social stress, financial stress, loss of self-esteem and confidence are often important factors to address.

No,: Autism is a neurological condition present before birth and manifesting at some point in infancy. Attachment issues can occur in any child exposed to prolonged, insufficient and/or inconsistent parenting.
A 34-year-old member asked:

It can last forever.: Reactive attachment process is a neurological disruption in social and self regulation created by poor infant nurturing. Individual and family therapy can help. Medications can help. However, it is not an easy thing to repair and often takes years to improve. Having healthy relationships during the rest of child and adult development will help a lot but is often not enough.
