Many believed that Robin Williams took his own life in 2014 after a long battle with depression, but in one of her first interviews since his death, his widow, Susan Schneider, argued that Diffuse Lewy Body Dementia (LBD) caused him to commit suicide.
When Robin Williams took his life in 2014, he left his millions of fans, family, and friends shocked and grieving โ€“ no one more so than his widow Susan Williams, who for the last year has remained mostly silent about her husbandโ€™s tragic passing in an effort to uncover and study the real cause of his death.

Now in one of her first interviews since losing Williamsโ€™ last August, Susan shares with PEOPLE the details of the debilitating brain disease called Diffuse Lewy Body Dementia or Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) that took hold of Williams and the coupleโ€™s harrowing ordeal to fight it.
โ€œIt was not depression that killed Robin,โ€ Susan says, speaking to the public perception of what drove Williams to commit suicide.

That is very interesting Intel. Thanks for sharing this.
But one point: 1st you mentioned that his Widow is Susan Schneider and then said that it is Susan Williams! So which one is it?

1st, my condolences to Williams family. He will be missed :(

2nd, consider what lunatics the right-wing Media in US are that:
"Rush Limbaugh Says Robin Williams Killed Himself Because Leftists Are 'Never Happy'"

As tragic as loss of Robin Williams is due to suicide, the related facts are much WORST. That is number of Americans above 50 whom commit suicide are at epidemic rates. After all Robin Williams was Rich & famous and he commited suicide, imagine how bad it is for 10s of 1000s of Americans above 50 who are not Rich & famous and are depressed! So we need to ask ourselves WHY are record number of American males 50 and over are committing suicide?
Answer is that US Media has engaged in such fear-mongering and hate-mongering that has sucked the life out of many American people and on top of that US lacks the most basic of Social services which is Government run Universal Socialized Health Care (NHS) that leaves Millions of Americans without even the possibility of getting care.

Yes, exactly.
We need to ask ourselves WHY does US have a suicide rate that are so much higher than the rest of the developed World? And then answer is indeed the hate-mongering & fear-mongering of rightWing Media which unfortunately as you have well documented is the entire US Media :(

Robin Williams appears to have suffered from endogenous depression. Moving fast and always in the moment probably helped quell the darker thoughts but such depressive thinking can be extreme if manic, with marvellous highs but the most awful lows and sometimes the lows prove just too much. We are poorer without him but honour his work.

First of all this is a horrible tragedy and he will be missed by all.

I imagine after all the investigations and past history are made public(and they will no doubt be) we will see this is like so many others. Its a classic case of untreated or grossly mistreatment of the disease. The fault does not solely fall on the clinician(s) treatment. The numbers are there that shows that, when the proper treatment for the individual is used, it is successful treatment. Successful treatment involves the patient. The patient Must abide by everything the clinician suggest him/her to do. No matter how small or "unimportant" he/she thinks it is. It is no doubt a fight and will be the hardest thing the patient will ever do in their lifetime. It does work if you work it. However, with the suffering involved with the symptoms of the disease itself, It seems impossible to the one suffering that he/she can and will get better. They Must surrender themselves totally to a professional for help.

Robin Williams.

Aging and Depression.

The combination of a history of depression and the effects of aging can be lethal. If one has had a lifetime of mental pain and are looking towards a future of physical pain, the question becomes โ€œHow bad does life have to get before one checks out.โ€

There are one in four people suffering from depression, I think this could be slightly less at 2014. We all have suffered when thing go wrong, but all these little things can stack up one thing after another time and time again until without help we can eventually snap and say F*** it.
This is a fact of life, this life in 2014 is very hard and it is easy to feel out of control with no one to help, but if you do not share the problem you can not get help. As an example whenyou go see the doctor, when you come out of the surgery you do feel slightly better, this I
is because you have unloaded something from your mind this in turn makes youfeel slightly better, as a hypnotherapist depression can be treated. But some sufferers do not like to see change, they have suffered so long they don't know what normal is.

I can answer the P.S., part of this question well, that is:
"Which Robin Williams movie did you like most?"
For me the answer is easy, it was and is "Bird cage" or as known in its original French version: LaCauge au Falls - sorry for my bad French :)

The world is changing day and night and whenever changes it acts like shouting us on our heads,If you can see things going on this world these days such as,killings,shootings,recessions,betrayals,unfair relationships,etc you can not blame someone to do suicide. I believe there are many unknown who have already done that too. any way its a big loss R.I.P

Thatdepression is a serious illness that cannot be ignored...
Any thought of suicide is serious, so if you ever heard anyone talking about committing suicide, take it seriously...call an expert.
