Robin Williams was very public about his ongoing struggle with addiction and depression. He chose to battle these issues by hiding behind humor and not confronting his underlying issues head on. Even after attending several rehab programs and Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, he still struggled and continued to hide.
Unfortunately his demons got the best of him on August 11, 2014 when he committed suicide in his home in California. We can learn a lot from Robin Williams, and raise awareness of the many consequences that come along with substance abuse and depression.
