Whether or not you have conclusive studies to prove a barrier in a similar situation is phenomenally successful (not that I personally do or don't), what should be noted is that people suffering from severe depression aren't constantly "desperate," they are sick. And it ebbs and wanes. If you thwart an attempt once, chances are that you've given them one more day to live. You've helped them beat an episode. I frankly think money could be better used to help these under-funded, under-appreciated people than in other areas where efforts are consistently being made.
Whether it's a statistically significant number of lives or just one, the latter is enough.
I hope this man rests in peace and that his family in friends can find their own as well.
