As someone who knows about depression, I feel so much sadness over Robin Williams’s death. Depression is an illness, and it’s ugly, and it kills. The fact that it could destroy someone so talented, accomplished, and loved really demonstrates how powerful this condition is.

Depression can be a horrible, ongoing struggle, but don’t let it win. You’re important. You matter. And you can beat the monster.

If you need a lifeline, please talk to somebody. Here are some groups just waiting to help:

IMAlive, An Online Crisis Network

Other crisis networks (list courtesy of Calming Brits & Irishmen)

USA and Canada

Canada for those under twenty years of age.

UK and Ireland


And many moreā€¦.
