LITTLE ROCK, AR - According to CNN, Comedic actor Robin Williams, 63, died at his Northern California home Monday, law enforcement officials say.

Coroner investigators suspect Robin Williams died from “suicide due to asphyxia,” Marin County Sheriff’s office says.

Williams last performed in Central Arkansas in October 2009 at Verizon Arena. 

He also was present at the opening of the Clinton Presidential Library in 2004.

Depression and suicide are topics that aren't talked about a lot, but during times like this both can be a cruel reminder of how real and debilitating mental illness can be.

In Arkansas, there are 2,057 suicide attempts a year according to Healthy Arkansas.

If you or someone you know suffers from depression, just know you're not alone, and there is help.
