In this letter to the editor, an anonymous author discusses her suicide attempt made 15 years previously. She attempted suicide when she became severely depressed after her husband’s death. The author discusses the fact that, at the time, no help was available to staff members who needed it. Therefore, she strongly supports Thompson & Brook’s recommendation to provide care for the caregivers in any way possible (see October 1990 issue of this journal). (MM)
