I would hope the death of Robin Williams had a positive effect on people's perceptions on mental health, but I'm not holding my breath.

FWIW, his stand up was occasionally brilliant but in general too manic for my taste, and his film work ranged from very, very good to dire.

The sad news of his demise was a bit of a 'WTF?' moment. In one of those strange quirks of scheduling, the last thing I watched before the story broke was an episode of Family Guy on BBC3 where everything Peter Griffin touched turned into a Robin Williams character.
