A Little About Robin Williams And A Lot Of Deeper Discussions About Mental Health

 

The death of Robin Williams rocked us all on Monday night. He was a beloved actor, played some of our favorite characters ever in some of our favorite movies ever, and now he's dead. He's dead, not from natural causes, but from suicide. Williams had long battled the illnesses (that many of us refer to as "demons) addiction and depression, but because he was the funny man, the one that always made us smile and laugh, we assumed that all would be well.
