the contraceptive Hormone effects can have depression and suicidal behavior: the Italian Medicines Agency says (AIFA) in an information note.

Anti-arthritis, the European Medicines Agency: with caution in patients at risk of blood clots
Depressed mood and depression are known side effects associated with hormonal contraceptives. Depression can be serious and constitutes a risk factor for suicidal behavior and suicide. Patients should therefore be informed and contact their physician if they notice mood swings and depressive symptoms, even if they occur shortly after starting treatment. The warning applies to all hormonal contraceptives sold at pharmacies, ie. pill, patch, vaginal ring, spiral and implant for subcutaneous use.
