Heath Ledger’s tragic death is a reflection of the quiet and often unnoticed suffering that many men go through while in depression,” according to Patrick Wanis, PhD, Celebrity Life Coach and Human Behavior Expert. “While female celebrities like Britney and Anna Nicole Smith scream out in pain, to be noticed, most men are either unable to identify with their feelings or they remain quiet refusing to admit that they need help – until it is too late” says Wanis. “From my clinical experience, while most women will turn to professionals for help, men won’t, preferring instead to deny their pain and vulnerability.”
“Although the details is not yet known, Heath Ledger has a similar story to Owen Wilson who almost took his life a few months after his breakup with his girlfriend, Kate Hudson. Heath Ledger had separated from Michelle Williams just five months ago, and the superintendent of Ledger’s building noticed that Ledger recently looked sad. Many men live in denial of the pain of unrequited love, breakups, rejection or failed relationships – they don’t turn to others for help” says Wanis. “Ledger’s death could have been avoided.” “We also fail to recognize sometimes that all the money and fame in the world cannot fill an inner emptiness or the pain of a broken family or lost love. And Heath Ledger’s death is a great loss -for now his two-year old daughter Matilda will live without her father. And the loss of a father is a much greater loss to a child than the lost talent of one actor ”, according to Wanis.
