Depression and suicide

They've found a genetic link between some anti-depressants and in increase in thoughts of suicide.

But what they didn't find was any link between thoughts of suicide and actual suicide.

That's the part I find interesting although it's not the part that gets written up.

It's my guess that people who report suicidal thoughts are those who don't want to commit suicide but are having thoughts and want help fighting those thoughts.

People who actually are thinking that them might want to commit suicide don't report the thoughts because they know they'll get locked up and lose the option.

I'm just guessing.
