Robin Williams Dies in Apparent Suicide

It’s not official, of course, that his death was a suicide, but we do know that he was suffering from depression, addiction, and perhaps some other mental health issues.

Unfortunately the death of Robin Williams serves as yet another painful reminder that mental health issues affect everyone, no matter how famous, successful, or funny. If you find yourself struggling with depression, wanting to die, or harm yourself please know that what your illness is telling you is a lie. Talk to someone, anyone, and get help.

And if you know someone struggling with depression, do whatever you can to listen, and get them help.

If you’re in the US, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. If you’re outside the US, please Google for a local resource, or leave a comment here if you know of one for your area!
