Everybody online keeps talking about how Kate Spade was “depressed.” There’s zero evidence of that, though, as well as of any “mental illness.” You don’t have to be sick to kill yourself. There is some overlap between depressive types and suicide types but it’s not that huge. Most depressives never kill themselves. The people who keep threatening suicide or making unsuccessful attempts are in a completely different category than those who actually do kill themselves. These are all vastly different psychological types. The mopey types are actually very good at clinging to life. They feed on the energy they suck out of others. Many successful suicides are actually very upbeat, highly narcissistic people with a positive, showy persona. Obviously, there are exceptions but the correlation of “she moped and wined and then offed herself” is not true.
