“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.”
Robin Williams‘ life and career was celebrated by his family and a bunch of his famous friends during a memorial service on Saturday (September 27) in San Francisco, Calif.
Celebs that were in attendance at the service included Ben Stiller and his wife Christine Taylor, Bette Midler, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jeff Bridges, Minnie Driver, Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman, Josh Groban, Seth Green, George Lucas, Penny Marshall, and many more.
“He made us laugh hard, every time you saw him on television, in arenas, hospitals, homeless shelters, and even in a dying girl’s living room,” Billy said. “The relentless energy was kind of thrilling. I used to think if I could just put a saddle on him and stay on for eight seconds…”
“It’s very hard hard to talk about him in the past because he was so present in all of our lives,” Billy added.

Robin Williams was cremated following his death and his ashes were scattered at sea, according to his death certificate.
The certificate does not list a cause of death and instead says that the legendary actor’s death is “pending investigation.”
TMZ reports that his body was cremated the day after he died and his ashes were scattered in San Francisco Bay.
Robin committed suicide on August 11 by hanging himself with a belt at his home. The toxicology results are still not back and they will be available in the next few weeks to see if he had any chemicals in his body when he died.
