It was with great sorrow we heard about the passing of Robin Williams yesterday. A man of great character, talent, and charisma has been prematurely taken from our world. While we know that there was a big battle with depression, the need for more understanding about this mental illness, among others, is clearly needed. With better understanding comes better ways to manage. With better ways to manage comes the avoidance of a loss of life. Nobody should die because of a mental illness, with support and kindness of others.
