My brother has been suicidal for awhile now. I know it but most of the rest of my family doesn't seem to believe it. I borrowed a book from him last night and found a series of suicide notes addressed to myself and to the rest of the members of my family. The circumstances were such that I am certain he did not intend for me to find them. I was wondering what someone, anyone might think I should do about it? I didn't read the letters but I don't know what to do with them. If I give them to the respective people they are addressed to, then these people might actually realize that my brother really is planning to kill himself. Then they can then take whatever actions they feel are necessary, such as spending more time with him (which is what I have been doing) or saying anything they think they need to. On the other hand I realize that my brother did not intend to give me these letters and if their content was anything other than what it is I would return them to him. Hell, I just don’t know. Is my obligation stronger to my brother whose privacy I would be violating? Or is it more important that I help the people who will continue after him? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
