Suicide, Addiction, and Depression

by Steph Mahrle

The news of Robin Williams' suicide is so shocking and sad. Depression and addiction are very real, and very stressful mental disorders. It is not just stressful for those who experience the disease, but also for their loved ones who helplessly observe the suffering. If you're struggling with mental illness or addiction, you're not alone. Reach out for the help you need. Everyone in the world is counting on you to be here and continue sharing your awesome talents. Each of you are so loved and valued. Do the best you can, everyday.
