Can I tell my therapist I'm having suicidal thoughts w/o getting sent to the loony bin?

I want to be honest...but...I don't want to end up in a psyc. ward. Thoughts and plans are different things.
Update: Like I said, it's THOUGHTS not plans....it's different.... Why is everyone thinking I need to be IN a mental ward. Thanks for the..ahem..support.
