Top celebrities we sadly lost to mental illness. They all committed suicide.

Despite increased awareness of mental illness and the negative impact it may have on people's lives, there is still a lot of stigma attached to it. People may try to deal with their problems behind closed doors and conceal their suffering as a result of this stigma. Although many people—including famous people—have made the decision to come forward and be open about their mental health difficulties, talking about the problem does not always imply that you can get over it.

Like any other condition, mental illness is a daily struggle that must be fought. Sadly, not everyone can transcend the pain that weights down on them. Here are the top celebrities who unfortunately passed away from mental illness, whether it was due to depression, past traumas, bipolar disorder, or something else entirely.

Nicolette Siwundla

Just one month after her birthday, the rising talent and house vocalist who was 27 years old took her own life in 2019. Her family, who thought highly of her character, was particularly shocked by the news. Top singles including Bhutiza, Daydreaming, and Far Away all featured Nichume.

Maseko Khensani

The 23-year-old activist and Rhodes University student committed suicide after alleging that her boyfriend had sexually assaulted her. Khensani attempted suicide in 2018 and had previously sought aid. She contacted Keri Perumal of Nkoli-Fassie, a group that addresses a variety of concerns, including sexual assault.

Cheslie Kryst

The former Miss USA committed suicide by leaping from the 29th floor of a building in New York City.

The 2019 winner's jump has been blamed for numerous "blunt impact injuries," according to officials.

Cheslie Kryst, 30, reportedly left her mother instructions on how to acquire all of her possessions in a suicide note, but she did not explain why she killed herself.

According to her father Rodney Kryst, she might have committed suicide. "I think it had a lot to do with familial concerns, but it will be awhile before we can discuss more," he was reported as saying by the New York Post. She had a nasty attitude.

Toby Singh Rajput

The recent high-profile Bollywood deaths of Irrfan Khan, Rishi Kapoor, and Wajid Khan—all renowned performers in the Hindi film industry—include Sushant Singh Rajput as well.

Among the movies he appeared in were MS Dhoni: The Untold Story and Kai Po Che! The actor, 34, was found dead at his Bandra residence on Sunday. He was said to have battled depression over the years.
