Trending hashtags are great to bring awareness to the importance of mental health, however, conversations are more meaningful.

So when we talk about surges in calls to hotlines, we're missing the bigger picture, Gold said. Her husband of 24 years, Andy Spade - David Spade's brother, revealed that Kate suffered from depression and anxiety for many years and was actively seeking help for her depression.
