The mental health charity Mind says calls to its support line have increased by a fifth following the death of Robin Williams.
However the charity is critical of the way some parts of the media reported the actor's death and says more consideration of others suffering from similar mental illness is needed.
Sam Bailey who suffered from depression spoke to BBC News about his experience.
