If you are considering self-harm, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. You can call 1-800-273-8255 or do online chat. It’s confidential and free.
Know the symptoms of clinical depression. It’s different from run-of-the-mill sadness — it’s a potentially life-threatening illness, but a treatable one. If you or someone you know is suffering, please call a doctor and get help.
And thank you, Robin Williams, for all the laughs.
