I agree with Joe that it does not help to cover up the cases of suicide in UBF. As I already said, in my chapter alone I am aware of 4 suicides and one attempted suicide. I know from my own experience in UBF that they can bring you in situations were you consider suicide (for instance if after much love bombing they recognize you are not obedient enough and drop you as a "junk sheep," making you believe that God has abandoned you as well) or if you are in such a situation for other reasons, UBF does not provide appropriate support and help and often make it even worse. This is one of the many problematic aspects of UBF that has not been sufficiently warned about yet. We cannot change anything about what has happened. But we can do what we can that these things do not happen again. And covering them up is not the best solution to achieve this I think. And these are not tragical individual case any more, I can see a pattern here.
