By Paul S. Taylor, CEO and President of Momentum for Mental Health

Kudos to the SJ Mercury News for publishing Vic Ojakian's article on suicide prevention training, your editorial and Wednesday's front-page story on Robin Williams.

The loss of this legendary performer demonstrates that major depression can touch anyone, regardless of ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, or sexual orientation.  As the President and CEO of a large mental health agency we witness this daily.  Unless you have walked in Robin’s shoes, it is hard to make sense of this terrible loss.
