Zelda Williams Speaking Out About Mental Health Stigma

In the immediate aftermath of Robin Williams’ suicide, his daughter, Zelda, left Twitter and other social media platforms after hearing from the worst of humankind about her father’s mental health problems. Now she is back and speaking out in hopes of ending the sort of stigma that created those previous comments.

So please, let’s help stop the misconceptions & support those who need our help,” she continued. “Healing the whole starts with healing minds. No matter what the misinformed say, you can’t simply CHOOSE to make mental illness go away. It is NOT cowardly to suffer or seek help.”

To end her discussion, Williams opened up about her father’s own journey.

“Lastly, my dad openly fought depression his whole life, both in general and his own,” she concluded. “No matter what anyone says, it is a FIGHT. Fight on.”

Fight on indeed, for all of those who need support, not ridicule.
