Robin Williams

His suicide in 2014 shocked thousands and thousands, however the Academy Award-winning actor/comic had a historical past with melancholy, substance and alcohol abuse.

He had been recognized with Parkinson’s and should have had a type of dementia.

In 2006, he described his highs and lows to NPR’s Terry Gross.

“Do I perform sometimes in a manic style? Yes. Am I manic all the time? No. Do I get sad? Oh yeah. Does it hit me hard? Oh yeah.”
