Would this phase you?
Would it change the relationship?

Five years is a long time, and while depression can be a chronic long term condition, I wouldn't automatically assume that nothing had changed in the last 5 years.
I would talk to them as much as they were willing to talk about it, to find out what sort of headspace they are in right now. What were the circumstances that made them think/attempt suicide back then, and whether things are different enough now.
Until I knew more, I could not say if it would change the relationship.0
