Suicide is often seen when someone just begins to respond to an antidepressant. When responding, one of the first things that occurs is an increase in mental energy. It appears before there is an improvement in mood. So, the result is that one still has the same reasons to commit suicide, but now has the energy to act on suicidal impulses that they hadn't had have the energy to act on previously. This period of increased risk often occurs between 2-3 weeks subsequent to the beginning of treatment. Because of this, a good psychiatrist will have their depressed patients come in once per week at the beginning of treatment.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
