Robin Williams’s death hit me hard. I remember watching Mrs. DoubtFire at my dad’s house during a very difficult time in my life–during my parents’ divorce. I laughed hard and felt deep sadness during the movie. I also remember watching Aladdin and Robin Williams as Genie’s voice. Robin Williams was one of my all-time favorite comedians and I’ll miss him.

I thought this article was a great reminder that those who are experiencing great pain in their lives and wanting to escape the pain through suicide are loved. Life is precious and suicide should not be talked about as an option–especially in the media. Those who are at risk for suicide must know that they are loved, cared for, and that help is available. Furthermore, mental health issues and solutions should not be stigmatized. Help is available for those who are in great pain and considering suicide. Rest in Peace Robin Williams.
