As someone who suffers from mild to moderate depression it's always nice to hear athletes open up like this. There's still a stigma against athletes discussing these things because it makes them look "soft" or whatever. But it's important both for guys like Richer and others who deal with mental illnesses to see someone like that open up.
For me it's never been to the point where I've tried to kill myself but I've had moments when even basic things become difficult and it's definitely hurt my performance at school/work and impacted my social life.
Hearing Richer talk about it certainly makes me more willing to open up, I mean hell, I'm telling it to strangers on an internet forum. Watching clips of this documentary is something I can relate to.
