I was lazy and stole this from another site.

Active suicide is when you make an effort to kill yourself, e.g. you shoot yourself, hang yourself, etc.

Passive suicide is when you don't make the effort to stay alive and so in effect let yourself be killed. For example refusing life saving medical treatment. You're not actively killing yourself but you are intentionally putting yourself on a course to death.

Suicidal thoughts can also be classified in the same manner.
eg.
Active suicidal thoughts:
"I want to shoot myself in the head"

Passive suicidal thoughts:
"Life is really worth living"


Life is good.
