Hollywood icon Robin Williams tragically took his own life earlier this week. He was suffering from severe depression – which isn’t uncommon and should be taken seriously and dealt with immediately to prevent such horrible endings.
To those of you suffering from depression, there IS help and there are people who want to help you. Unfortunately Robin Williams isn’t the first celebrity to take his own life due to depression. There are many others. And there are still others who aren’t in the spotlight that do it every single day. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
We need to not only talk about mental illness but also take steps to help those who are suffering. For more information, visit www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org.
