Columnist: Mental Illness Can Undermine Logic, Overwhelm Good Intentions.

In her column in the Los Angeles Times (8/16), Sandy Banks wrote, “Mental illness can undermine logic and overwhelm good intentions.” She asserted that “the best way to honor” Robin Williams “may be to drag depression out of the closet and place it center stage.” She suggested that “instead of saying ‘Are you OK?’ to a friend who seems hopeless or depressed, we ought to ask directly, ‘Have you felt so bad you wanted to die?’”
