I guess one can assume that there's some correlation between depression and suicide.
Here are suicide rates from various countries from WHO:
USA suicide rates http://www.afsp.org/statistics/USAagegroup.htm
Looking over these charts I could not infer anything. Other than the fact that men kill themselves more than women.
Some of the data my be bad, I don't know. The only thing that's clear is that mental illness is universal, whether medication helps I don't know.
Interesting data to explore though.
