If the psych really felt that you were a danger to yourself, then he would most likely violate your privacy and let your mom know, with good intention because he would want your mom to be aware and to look after you so that you don't commit suicide.
But since you are not actually considering doing it, your psych will keep it in privacy. Before anything, a psychiatrist is ethically bound to their patient. Privacy is very, very important for them to respect. How else can they help you if you cannot trust them? They only violate privacy if they think you will hurt yourself or hurt others.
Also remember, your psych has seen plenty of people with suicidal thoughts before. By now he or she should know the difference between a person who is a risk to others and a person who is having the thoughts because of some reason. I'm sure through treating you, he will be able to see that you are not a danger, and help you get through it rather than tattle-tale.
