What can I say, this has been a tough year for the General Hospital family. But this week has really done a number on fans and the entire industry. Billy Miller was a talented, genuine soul who lit up not just the screen, but the whole room.
As tributes for Billy Miller continue to pour in, Maurice Benard’s outreach contains a powerful message. Ultimately, mental health awareness is a way of life for the three-time Daytime Emmy winner. While many tributes displayed the most genuine love and support, Maurice Benard takes things to a more serious level, and touches on the issue at hand.
Maurice Benard On Billy Miller and Mental Health
Benard’s YouTube series, State of Mind, allows for open dialogue about life and mental health. As a bi-polar disorder sufferer, Miller’s death hit very close to home for General Hospital’s leading man. According to General Hospital news reports, Benard shared an Instagram post that brings awareness to mental health and suicide. Check out his IG post below!
Since the pandemic I have been speaking out on Suicide quite a lot, in the beginning, I was hesitant, I didn’t know how people would handle it. But it’s been very encouraging so I have not stopped talking about it!!! It’s hard to really understand Mental illness unless you have experienced the depths of pain that comes with it. This is a @mbstateofmind i did about two months ago but there’s many. And I promise you there will be many many more to come if you know anyone who is going through any kind of darkness, chaos, pain. Just know, all you can do is give them love, patience, understanding, and hopefully Professional help if they agree. And unfortunately, if someone doesn’t want to be on this earth anymore, there’s only so much we can do just remember, it’s not your fault never blame yourself

if you’re feeling in any kind of way, like life is not worth living for don’t think twice to talk to someone take it from the most fragile person in the world you can get through it. And life has a way of rewarding you.
