I've told this tale before, but another cautionary tale, about how anyone who is depressed needs gentle support and professional help.
One of my friends hung himself. He was a pioneer TM , 17, gay, and a cross-dresser (closeted, of course). His mother was a rabid JW, father abandoned them when he was an infant.
In 1975, the gay culture was not what it is today. It was far, far underground, by necessity. Even now, that particular city is still known for its closed-mindedness. He truly had nowhere to turn.
Mark left a note. He was hopeless ... he felt he would lose everything. I don't know if a belief in demonization because of his orientation played into it; maybe, it was the 70s. Someone found him several days after he did the deed. RIP sweet man
I didn't even know he was gay, he was so far in the closet; we were pioneering TM together.
Yes, the Watchtower killed him.
Shortly thereafter, I left the KH, never to return.
Neither you nor I can determine how close to the edge a depressed person may be. That I can tell you from my professional training as a rape crisis line intervenor. So, yes, telling a depressed JW that they are demonized is a very dangerous thing to do.
