Fucking hell man. There was help available if you were feeling down.

Damn.

I'm pretty sure his mental issues went a lot deeper than just "feeling down"... that's probably the case for most, if not all, suicides too. Unfortunately mankind sucks at dealing with mental health, maybe because it only recently became a widespread issue, and this kind of thing is just happening more and more. I almost get the feeling that all of us know someone with these struggles, that most of us will see a close friend or relative commit suicide at some point, and... what can we do, really? I don't know how these things can be dealt with. It sucks.

RIP Desmond.

My heart sunk when I heard this. RIP Etika.

He was really like a distant brother for me, even though I didn't know him. I can't believe this.



This is sadly going to get milked to high heaven by people mental health is not something to take lightly.



RIP

Mental health is no joke. If you see someone crying for help, listen and urge them to get the help they need. Many do not have direct support in their lives or do not get taken seriously until it is too late. I send my prayers to his friends and family, he left us way too young.

He was one of the biggest nintendo fans on youtube, used to enjoy his over the top nintendo direct reactions RIP.

God this hurts. I have never had anyone close to me commit suicide, so this is the closet thing to it and I don't know how to feel. I am heartbroken and on the verge of tears. Rest in Peace Etika, Joycon Boyz for life

People with mental health issues normally dont accept help.
And the system often doesnt want to try.... it costs money to take care of people, so atmost they get the bare minimum help they need.
Which sadly is often not enough.

remember this:

His ex-girl friend twitted that she was happy he was getting help now, and the doctor promised her he wouldnt be leaveing any time soon.
Not until he was well..... guy was out in less than a week, and a week later he jumps off a bridge.
Sadly stuff like this isnt uncommon.



I can't believe this. Etika was one of my favorite YouTubers ever. He was freaking hilarious, and the only guy whose reactions I would watch. I always got so excited to see a new Etika video in my subscriptions feed.

I may use the Pro Controller, but make no mistake, the Joycon Boyz will never forget you!

I'm not super familiar with him, but he did guest star in some Achievement Hunter Let's Play channel videos a couple of years ago. I heard that he was missing a few days ago, sucks that he committed suicide. RIP
