What Robin Williams Taught Us about Depression


The recent loss of Hollywood icon Robin Williams was a reminder to the world that we can never know what struggles each person has to deal with in their lives. For someone who was known for the laughter that he brought and the positive image that he had, it may come as a surprise that Robin Williams would commit suicide. However, when we realize that he was battling with depression, we begin to have an idea of how that may have come to pass. Depression is more than just feeling sad for a moment; it is a serious mental illness that affects a persons feelings, behavior, thoughts, and relationships with others and with themselves. The following video is a powerful description of depression as a very personal disease: 


According to the National Alliance of Mental Illness, about 25 million Americans have a depressive episode each year, yet only about half of these people receive treatment for their condition. It is important for us to see depression as a real disease that can even result in the death of a loved one. Here at the Medical Research Group of Central Florida, we take depression very seriously, and that is why we conduct various studies on depression for people of all ages. We strive to come up with new solutions for the treatment of depression that may make a difference in peoples lives. If you or someone you know is suffering from depression, or if youd like to know more about the trials we are conducting, please visit our web page at or give us a call at (386)-775-7627. Together we can work to make the world a happier place.
