Psychiatrists and suicide (x-posted)

I was recently reading a book called Gracefully Insane and it discussed the fact that there are a lot of psychiatrists who commit suicide.

Why do you think this is? Do you think it's due to the fact that they have to deal with severely depressed people every day (and because successfully treating someone is probably pretty rare)? Do you think they get into the profession of psychiatry because they, themselves, have a "mental illness"?

Any thoughts?
