A single offhanded comment made withot thought can influence another person’s life for years to come.

The best way to honor [Robin] Williams may be to drag depression out of the closet and place it center stage.
Sandy Banks writes that, in the wake of Robin Williams’ death, it’s time to shine a light on suicide and banish the shame. “Instead of saying ‘Are you OK?’ to a friend who seems hopeless or depressed,” she writes, “we ought to ask directly, ‘Have you felt so bad you wanted to die? Have you thought about taking your life?’” (via latimes)

Anonymous said: Life isn't worth it anymore.. I'm sorry to let you all down. Thank you for trying to help at different times. I hope you do much better than I ever did- M.

mental-health-advice:

Hey there M,

You haven’t let anyone down. But life is worth it! The future is full of wonderful possibilities, and there are so many things for you left in life. You must have or have had goals, dreams, and ambitions that you haven’t achieved yet. Those things are out there for you!

But you’ll never get to know if you give up. Sometimes it’s hard, but in order to discover all the fantastic things you have yet to experience and achieve in the world you have to keep fighting.

Is there something wrong that you’d like to talk about? Perhaps you could try talking to a helpline or a web counselor about what you’re feeling right now. We’re also listening if you need somebody to talk to.

If you’re in any danger, please contact a helpline or call emergency services. It’s a cliche now, but it gets better. It really does. I’ve been there, so many times. Keep fighting.

We’re here to help you.

Elliot
