Depression Played A Major Role In The Death Of Robin Williams – Here’s Where You Can Get Help If You Are Also Suffering From Depression

There is nothing like the death of a celebrity to throw light on subjects like cancer, drug addiction, and in the case of Robin Williams, depression. The whole world was shocked to find out that he died yesterday, and the news that he committed suicide after battling depression for years, was an even bigger shock. Robin Williams had a lot of resources available to him to help in his battle with depression – he was lucky in that way, because there are so many others who don’t have that kind of help. We’ve put together a list of places you can go if you are also battling depression.

The National Suicide Prevention Hotline is a wonderful resource. They not only have a hotline, 1-800-273-TALK(8255). They are available on the phone 24/7, and have tips for recognizing the warning signs of someone who might be contemplating suicide. They even have tips on how to handle if an online friend mentions suicide. Take some time to browse their website – you never know when you might need the information you learn there.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness focuses on the causes of depression, and other mental illnesses. They have links for education programs, and services for people whose lives have been affected by serious mental illness. You can also find information on support groups for teens, veterans, and others who are dealing with mental illness.

The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance is another website that offers education on mental illnesses, wellness options, and peer support. They also offer support for families and friends who are dealing with someone who is battling mental illness and depression. According to their website, DBSA’s mission is “to provide hope, help, support, and education to improve the lives of people who have mood disorders.”

Finally, The American Psychiatric Association is a science based, patient focused group that has excellent resources available for parents of teens and college aged children, as well as for adults who are suffering from depression.

Any one of the groups can help you find local help and advocacy. There are links to local mental health providers on each website. Please, if you are suffering from depression, or know someone who is, please take a moment to look over these websites and use them to get the help you or your loved one needs.
