yes, in fact, this is a good a time as any to talk about the effects of depression, and to let people know how omniprescent it is and to motivate people to move past it, because a lot of people are suffering with their own and a death can make things hard on everyone.
so do not tell people to shut up about depression. it’s a very serious topic and this is a very good time to spread word.
It’s not disrespectful to robin williams at all. It’s mindful. It’s informative of what he was going through, and what others are going through.
I respect robin williams enough to try to make sure no one suffers the same fate.
