I remember he alluded to taking his life a while back, deleted his youtube channel (I think) and disappeared.
People were worried, but when he came back he acted as if it was just a misunderstanding. But that, coupled with several other things, I thought was a textbook example of a cry for help.
And yet the psych ward released him after a week, apparently?
Sounds like they failed him. I read that some of his close friends talked to the doctors so they should have been aware of his situation.
People might want to look into potential negligence from the hospital.
I've seen some of his videos, and he seemed like a fun nice guy. A big loss for the many people who cared about him.
I get you. But my bet is that he agreed to make some changes in his life, seemed good enough for the staff and they let him go.
I dunno. At least that's what I'd like to think. As someone very familiar with psych treatment, that is usually how it goes. It ultimately depends on the patient if they think they can handle the situation. Of course, Desmond's case went too far, but still...
Still, very sad. Actually shocked right now.
