Here is an unfortunate news clipping today:

It seems American soldiers are committing suicide at alarming rates. These are people force fed MSG in their rations. Perhaps the military should be looking into how diet affects depression. I know that they are under stress, but since MSG was introduced into the American food supply, suicide has increased dramatically.

Per the article linked below the drug lithium, which protects against glutamate, also reduces the rate of suicide. It stands to reason that glutamate itself could have the opposite effect in some individuals.
