Depression doesn’t discriminate

After the sad news from America last night. The death of Robin Williams has brought the issue of mental illness to the fore.

Mental illness doesn’t discriminate. Whether you’re rich or poor, fat or thin black or white, it can happen to you. I suffer from depression and I have come close to committing suicide.

You can’t see if a person is depressed. There are no outward signs. It’s time to have a conversation about mental illness. Not keep it in the dark place.

If, you someone with depression talk to them. Be there for them because I know that they will be there for you.
