Unhappy Michael Blosil, son of Marie Osmond, commits suicide. - February 27th 2010, 09:53 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

Marie Osmond's son, who was 18 years old, took his own life by jumping from his apartment building. It was said he's been struggling with depression his whole life.

Article here: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/goss...s-suicide.html

With celebrities starting to take their lives due to depression, and commercials discussing famous folks and their/their family's struggles with mental illness, hopefully the stigma will be lifted soon.

Its unfortunate that it has to be this way, but lets just hope that their sad sacrifices may bring a bit of help to others going through the same struggles.

This is so sad. My thoughts are with his family. I hate that it takes something like this, suicide, for awareness and action to start happening, but that's the way the world runs now. It just sucks.

My thoughts are with everyone who knew him. So sad.

Letís make a new tomorrow
Come on girls, come on boys

And your weapon is your voice
Letís make a new tomorrow

I've been thinking the exact same thing! I also hate how it takes celebrities stepping forward for awareness to spread, they aren't the only important people in the world lost to this!

Yes indeed! They're no more important because their families make more and have their mugs plastered all over TV.

Very sad news. RIP

As has been said, it's not only celebrities who must face this kind of loss and the grief that comes with it. I can only hope that events like this help people to acknowledge the reality of the issues which led up to his death (and that of Andrew Koenig as well) so people who are feeling suicidal are able to reach out for support. That would be the best outcome in my view.
