Pete Davidson’s Cry For Help Is A Cry For Help From All Of Us

We have a serious mental health problem in this country.

Earlier this year, we lost both Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain to mental illness. Over the weekend, we nearly lost another one to mental illness, Saturday Night Live star, Pete Davidson.

Thankfully, he was reached before he could do anything drastic or permanent.

When one commits or attempts to commit suicide, it is not an act that not done in a bubble. It the culmination of days, weeks, months or even years of emotional and mental anguish.

His struggles with mental illness and addiction have been well documented. As someone who also lives with mental illness, I completely understand the daily struggle that sometimes leads to suicide.

His cry for help is much more than one person’s struggles with mental illness. It is the cry for everyone who struggles with mental illness. I hope that he gets the help that he needs and I hope that every one of us who lives with mental illness gets the same help.
