I've always known this person was a chronic depressive and had suicidal thoughts. They've never attempted suicide but I've been aware of there mental health state for a long time. Right now they are in an upswing and doing fine but a little while ago they were in a very bad place. I found a suicide note that I think is from that time but I am not certain and I have no idea what to do with this information.
Anon internet is one way to figure it out

I wouldn't worry about it, just leave it in the past. But if there are signs that the person is falling into a real deep dark and unhappy depressive moods again, then you may have to notify someone such as their parents or someone close to them about that note. But right now, just leave it where it is, as you said he's doing fine now and maybe his depression is over and it's best to not bring up his past, on what he had wrote and remind him or trigger all of those unhappy feelings again as to why he had wrote the note in the first place at the time he had wrote it.0

I don't think confronting them and holding the note in their face and saying don't do it is the thing (not that you would), but I think knowing this information now, you as a friend have more of an obligation in the future when you see them going down to be much more hyperventilate about them and being there for them and involving others in trying to help them seem professional help and bringing up the note to a professional if things get dark again for them.1
