"Robin Williams untimely passing" : Raymond Anthony Fernando's letter to the press

Singapore's leading advocate for the mentally ill Raymond Anthony Fernando’s letter to ST’s Life Section: "Robin Williams untimely passing"

 My letter on Robin Williams and mental illness appears in the Life Section of today’s Straits Times – Saturday 16th August 2014. Check it out. and here's what I say in that letter. Short letter, but sends a very clear message.

Robin Williams’ passing is a timely reminder for mental illness to be taken seriously. Mental illness is a issue that affects real people and requires support, understanding and compassion for the patients, and their family and caregivers.
