RIP Robin Williams. What most people don’t know is that 15% of people with Bi Polar disorder will die from it. 20% of people with Major Depressive Disorder will die from it and 13% of schizophrenics will also die of their illness. The death rate from breast cancer is 6.8%. Mental Illness is terminal. Mental Illness is fatal. More fatal then even some cancers. I hope if nothing else comes out of this tragedy, that it will bring some help and awareness to the 1/3 of our population that suffer from mental illness.
