Go, Read: Cartoonists Melissa Mendes And Erika Moen On Robin Williams' Passing And Depression

Here is a short essay by Melissa Mendes. She mostly talks about her own experiences, in articulate and straight-forward fashion. I'm surprised by the certainty expressed on all sides as to underlying cause of the decesased actor and comedian taking the actions he did. I don't think we'll ever fully know. Mendes' advice seems sound and is certainly hard-won.

Erika Moen's response is in comics form here, and is similarly engaged with the author's own experiences.
