Celebrities react to Robin Williams' passing.
Following her return to Twitter, Zelda Williams is remembering her father in honor of World Mental Health Day.

The Detention star shared a series of messages on Twitter paying tribute to the late Robin Williams this Friday afternoon, urging thousands of her followers to take mental illness and depression seriously.

Amid news that fellow actress Amanda Bynes was admitted to a care center under involuntary psychiatric hold, the 25-year-old tweeted:

Zelda took a brief hiatus from the social media platform after she was harassed by Internet trolls. Following her father’s suicide on Aug. 11, the young actress began to be spammed with gruesome Photoshopped images of the late comedian, leading Zelda to sign off with a simple message reading: “I’m sorry. I should’ve risen above. Deleting this from my devices for a good long time, maybe forever. Time will tell. Goodbye.”

Robin, who was reportedly battling with inner demons and early stages of Parkinson’s Disease prior to his death, hung himself with a belt in his Tiburon, Calif. home this summer. He was 63.
