Zelda Williams Honors Dad Robin on World Mental Health Day

Zelda Williams is honoring the memory of her dad Robin Williams and trying to raise awareness for several charities on World Mental Health Day.

“Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay. Mental illness is often misunderstood & misrepresented, but that’s starting to change. Let’s end the stigma,” the 25-year-old actress tweeted. “Mental health IS as important as physical health, & whether there are visible signs or not, the suffering is real. It can affect EVERYONE.”

“So please, let’s help stop the misconceptions & support those who need our help. Healing the whole starts with healing minds,” Zelda continued. “Some wonderful mental health charities: supportbarrow.org, afsp.org, narsad.org, and hopeforthewarriors.org.”

“No matter what the misinformed say, you can’t simply CHOOSE to make mental illness go away. It is NOT cowardly to suffer or seek help,” Zelda concluded. “Lastly, my dad openly fought depression his whole life, both in general and his own. No matter what anyone says, it is a FIGHT. Fight on.”

    Your dad will always stay a charming and very talented person for me. His eyes often brought me warmth and the chills at the same time. because it was as if he saw through the person he looked at. I cherish him for his personality and for what he gave as a present to the world by his big efforts to bring love and better things in this world, while he was struggling for happiness himself. I will never forget him. I hope he rests in peace. If anyone deserves it, it is him. RIP Robin, you were an angel in disguise, and I always loved your movies.

    Very important day and charities to highlight. Thee is still so much stigma and lack of awareness about mental health problems.

    It astounds me that people assume illness is from the neck down.
    Even the flu virus can bring on depression. None of us are immune.
