Depression is Killer

Richard Jeni, who took his own life in 2007.

In the wake of Robin Williams’ death, speculated to be suicide from depression, I got thinking about other comedians who have done the same or battled demons. Jim Carrey has publicly talked about his own challenges. I thought I’d pass along the recent offering from The Washington Post, because depression can sometimes be a very serious clinical condition that needs more help than the garden variety blues.
