This report summarizes what the authors learned about a cluster of suicides (n=4) at a government facility. Psychological autopsies were used. No evidence of identification or imitation among the victims was noted, but there were numerous commonalities among the victims, particularly with respect to warning signs. Problems with the EAP, e.g. confidentiality, are reviewed. It is recommended that a media policy be developed because stories of these suicides contained several inaccuracies.
