Actor and comedian #RobinWilliams was found dead yesterday of an apparent suicide in his Tiburon, CA home just north of San Francisco. Williams was said to have been dealing with substance abuse and depression. This is very sad news and Williams becomes one the thousands of individuals who complete a suicide each year in the USA. 39,518 died by #suicide according to the most recent statistic (2011) available from the American Suicidology Association. My condolences to his family and friends.
