Why do you suppose it is that wealthy people with psychological disorders sometimes end up killing themselves? They
clearly have enough money to try all available psychological and psychiatric option available to help themselves. It is my opinion that they reach a point where their psyc problems have not been resolved, they can't think of any more options to resolve them, so find suicide a rational choice. I also think that all of them did, in reality, have even more options but they were not able to figure out what they would be.

Didn't know that Anthony did that, but you're right, they can get the help they need, there are people out there that can help with depression.

Well it is clear that apparently money doesn't necessarily equate to happiness.  But most of these people have money, spouses, kids whatever -  I don't get it but I feel for their friends fans and family.

That is why they should have asked other people if there were any more options they could think of.

Mental illness affects everyone across all incomes; many times family many times family and friends may be aware but trying to get the individual to treatment can be a challenge if they do not think they need it; other times those around the person  may be  in denial so it is just a sad situation at times. I am  glad that more awareness and education is beginning to be focus on resources.

The same reasons anybody else kills themselves. TALKING to a phyc doctor does not fix your problems. This world is a tough place and people are dealing with a lot. Some deal with it better than others.

Just because somebody kills themselves doesn't mean they have "mental illness".

Mental illness can affect anyone no matter how much money they have or how famous they are.  It is a silent disease that can make people do things they would not usually do.

I don't believe that Anthony Bourdain killed himself, nor Robin Williams. Maybe I'm wrong. When you take your own life the connection is mental illness. It's not normal to take your own life.

I guess they get tired of living on stage whether they are on the stage or not. It  is a lot of pressure to try to stay on top and please everyone under the sun. Plus people are always wanting something from you just because of who you are.

Some people just can't be helped no matter how much money they have or doctors they see.

We can all think we might know the reason or reasons why someone may kill themselves.And maybe lots of times we may be right.But we also might be wrong too.

Only God sees the heart condition of us and only he knows the real reason to judge why that person did it.God commands us NOT to kill and suicide is just that.But maybe a physical or mental reason caused it where God can forgive the person for it and give them reason for the truth and living again.

So not to be difficult here, but what do you believe happened to Anthony Bourdain and Robin Williams?  Do you think they were murdered, or do you think that they are still alive and in hiding?  Or are you maybe saying that you believe their deaths were merely accidental and not intentional?
